Day 2 ++ Modern Plus Sign Quilts Book Hop ++ Signature Plus and Tribal Plus

Welcome to the second day of the Modern Plus Sign Quilts book hop and the first day we are sharing book quilts!   Today, we will be sharing Signature Plus and Tribal Plus as well as hosting a giveaway of some fabulous thread (sponsored by Aurifil).

Signature Plus

Signature Plus was our take on a modern version of the Red Cross Signature Quilt from WWI (you can see the WWI version and read more about it here).

Our Signature Plus blocks were made by 122 bloggers from across the US and England.  I pieced the blocks together and Johellen George quilted the quilt with a beautiful floral quilting design.  Michael Miller provided the Cotton Couture Solids and other fabric to make this quilt and Warm & White batting from the Warm Company was used.

Soma, Ann, and Kitty used the Signature Plus pattern to make some new quilts and items, please check out their blogs...

Tribal Plus

Tribal Plus is a fun, lap sized design that Paige designed, pieced, and quilted.  The instructions use strip piecing so this quilt comes together really quickly and easily. I love how she used quilting to highlight the row nature of the quilt.

The fabrics came from Windam Fabrics, the batting was Warm & White, and Aurifil threads were used for the piecing and quilting.

Sophie, Afton, and Shelly used the Tribal Plus pattern to make some new quilts and items, please check out their versions...

    I absolutely love seeing all the different versions of the quilts, as it really gives me so many ideas!
