I feel such satisfaction in a good scrap quilt. I started these pink plus blocks because my pink scrap bin was overflowing. I probably should've kept going, because I've still got too many pink scraps.
I paid no attention to shades of pink and put them all in this one quilt...from the purply-pinks to the peachy-pinks, and I'm a little surprised that it worked out so well.
Polka dot binding.
I love Sarah Jane's border prints, and I used this one on the back. You can also see how I quilted it. I basically quilted straight lines, in the ditch along all the pluses.
I thought I'd share the measurements for this block.
each block finishes at 8 inches.
background: 4-3.5" square & 4-2" squares
plus 1-5"x2" rectangle & 2-2" squares
I kept my plus all the same fabric and tried to keep the background similar fabrics. Some of the pluses pop more than others, and I like the effect.
Finished size: 39.5"x43" (after washing and drying)
