Check Plus in Quilty Magazine

Way back in May, the blog went a little quiet because I was working on some secret sewing.  

I am happy to be able to introduce, Check Plus, a lap sized quilt for November/December 2014 issue of Quilty Magazine (The pattern may also be downloaded as a stand alone pattern from Quilty here).  

This is my first quilt published in a magazine so I am very excited!



Check Plus is a fun, beginner friendly plus in a plus quilt using some of the prints from April Showers by Bonnie and Camille for Moda on a background of Kona Snow.  

I quilted Check Plus in a diagonal pattern and finished off the quilt with a diagonal striped binding.

I made a fun pieced backing for the quilt using one plus block and some Kona Fog.  I think that I might actually like the back better than the front :)
