A Tale of Two Quilts: Part II

Last Monday I shared the first of two quilts that I sewed as Christmas gifts for my girls. Today I'm sharing the second quilt, the quilt that I made for my youngest...


I mentioned in a post way back in August that I wanted to make a plus quilt. I'm so glad I did. I really love this quilt pattern.


The finished quilt is about 43" square, and I used charm squares again. If you're interested in making a plus quilt, Jeni at In Color Order has a great tutorial, which I used to decide how to sew my quilting lines. Love the look of it...


Here's the back. It's a little busy, but I kind of like it...


And here's the label on the back of this quilt...


Same style as the label I made on the other Sherbet Pips quilt. Again, I got the idea for this label design here.

I love these quilts, and I really think I'm getting hooked on quilting. In fact, I'm working on a doll quilt right now that will be a birthday gift for my youngest later this week. Hopefully I'll be showing it to you soon. I still have to show you some other Christmas gifts that I made, too. Can you believe January is almost over?!? Crazy! Have a great week :)



I'm linking up over at {Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations and Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story.

Love it Gwen! I'm trying to not get hooked with the quilting bug because it's expensive! :) But I have to say I adore quilts and look forward to having a delicious stack of them someday.
xoxo,
Amy

Gwen both your quilts are beautiful! The "plus" design is a pretty one isn't it? Your quilting and point-matching are excellent. I can't hardly believe these are some of your first quilts. You're a natural, in my opinion.
