a plus quilt finished!

This is the first time I have made a plus quilt, and I am really liking this pattern.  It's so simple (just squares), but I love that it creates a design too.  
I just now realized that this is actually another pixelated quilt, to go along with the other two I'm working on.

When we moved back to Texas a year and a half ago, I was naturally very worried about my school age daughter.  I worried more about her than anything else.  

As it usually goes, her adjustment to new school and new friends was a breeze.  I owe most of that to her teacher last year, we really lucked out.  That same teacher just had a baby, so this quilt is for her baby.  I love her so much.  She helped my daughter to blossom and brought out the best in her. 
I quilted it on either side of the seams, and I love the texture it has, so soft.


 Bound in blue and white stripes (this might be my very favorite binding ever, it's just so clean and crisp).  Binding is from Sarah Jane's Out to Sea line for Michael Miller

  15. Those colors are great! I love a plus quilt. I'll have to try one w/ 5" squares...instead of 2 1/2". Sounds a lot faster!
