A New Addition Finish

I finished my Plus quilt this week! Yay! This cute little quilt is going to a friend of my son's who is expecting his first baby next month.

I used some Riley Blake prints and Kona solids for this project. I really love the Russian dolls!

I quilted it with a soft meander in Aurifil white 50 wt. thread and used scraps from the top for the binding. The back is a print I've had forever.

"A New Addition" measures about 35" x 40", perfect for a sweet baby to snuggle under. :-)

I think I might try to make a few more Plus quilts... Maybe even a full size bed quilt with scraps. Wouldn't that be great?

I feels wonderful to finally have a finish to share. Work has been so crazy, I really haven't been able to spend much time in my sewing room. But this week, I am on vacation so have been playing with fabric!

Thanks for stopping by and for those of you who celebrate - Happy Easter weekend!
