Another plus quilt. This time, I'm trying the "rectangle in the middle" method. I'm already seeing a disadvantage to using this method, I can't use my "stack and sew" method, posted back here which would save me eons of years as I sew it together. I'll have to sew row by row . . . boooorrring!
I think I'm looking for a more muted look, maybe more green too.
The inspiration came from the colors I saw in this quilt by quiltstory on IG.
Here are the notes I'm working off of:
twin bed size (for my sewing room)
squares are 4 inches.
1 rectangle and 2 squares = 1 plus
18 squares wide (if the rectangles were 3 squares)
24 squares long
9 squares x 6 squares
cut FQ into 4-4inch strips across longer length of fat quarter. cut 1 4x11, cut 2-4x4.
need 21 FQ
love the dark gray binding
for the love of George (ha ha, love the name of her blog) has a nice tutorial. I've made lots of plus quilts, but always cut all squares, never used a rectangle for the middle piece. This diagram helped with the layout.
