Meadowbloom Plus Quilt

Sometimes you come across fabric that just speaks to your heart, and falls in your basket. Twice. I just love the colours and the patterns. So did my grandson, it was almost his quilt.
I made this quilt with charm squares, so super easy and fast. Since I made my last plus quilt I have been wanting to make another. When I saw Meadowbloom by April Rosenthal I knew this was going to be a wonderful combination. The colours are wonderful, and seem to lend themselves perfectly to the pluses. I love it.
This quilt is for a lovely friend, just because. It could be because she is always there when you need her, or it could be because she just had a rough patch with family health issues, or it could be because she is so generous. Just because!
The back almost fit, had to piece a itty bit in one corner.
Over the long weekend we went to an antique store and I spotted this water feature. I did not care for garden statues but they are growing on me. It is so whimsical and I love it.


  1. That's a beautiful quilt, Pam - you're right, the fabrics are awesome! Whoop whoop!!

  2. I LOVE plus quilts but have yet to make one where the plus signs meet up.....I'm going to copy this one!

  3. I've also made a plus quilt but the pluses were different sizes and randomly placed. I think I should make one with this order and calm. The fabrics are gorgeous and add to the peaceful mood. Your garden statue is cute and whimsical. It looks like maybe it's a bird bath. Regardless, it's a sweet backdrop for the quilt photo.
