Maker Plus Quilt

I adore the Maker line from Art Gallery. I only had fat eighths of the prints. Originally, I intended to make a small baby quilt with the fabrics I had on hand, but decided it needed to be bigger. I filled in the additional space with various Art Gallery Pure Elements. These solids coordinate perfectly with the prints.


The finished blocks are 3" square. The finished quilt size is 57" x 72" (19 blocks x 24 blocks).

I used a boxy quilting design on this quilt. It is backed with a piece of gray minky I've been holding onto for a while. It was perfect for the back of this project. I love how the quilting shows up on the back.

I really love this one! Once it is washed it will be a perfectly snuggly quilt.

  5. Love the plus quilt. I did a similar quilt that went from little to queen size. I love it. I put black minky on the back. http://stardustquilting.blogspot.ca/2015/04/more-plus.html

  6. I'm glad you are back. Your 'quitting' post was so sad. I didn't want to argue with you so I didn't post anything. Sometimes it is time to change hobbies. I felt selfish since I got so much pleasure from your posts and your creations. However, I'm just glad you feel better about sewing and quilting! These last two quilts are just as beautiful as anything you make.
