A Real Plus--sneak peek

Thank goodness for pieces of batting that can be pieced together......backs too !  (I'm not revealing the back until I'm all done!)

Here's an in-progress photo......the center is all quilted.   I need to figure out what I want in the rust border, and then quilt it and the little pieced outer border.  As you can see, I still feel safer with thread-basting, and I was able to move things around enough in the living room today to set up the basting frame.

I'm liking how this is quilted.  I just looked all over Flickr for plus quilts, and many of them are quilted the same, it seems........a quarter-inch in from the edge of the block, with the centers left empty.  Not to pat myself on the back, but I like this look much  better........plus, I got a REALLY GOOD upper body workout out of it at the same time !   Love that free-motion quilting .


  1. You are amazing...its a beauty! The snow is pretty isn't it? I just wish I could accomplish 1/8 of what you get finished! =)

  2. This is so beautiful! Can't wait to see it finished!


Thanks for stopping by !
