Plus Quilt Top

                                         I finished Luke's quilt top this past weekend.  I've had it wadded it up on my porch since I made it so it is a little wrinkly.  I used this pattern.   The background is Essex linen in natural and I used a variety of fabrics I had in my stash and a few I bought just for the quilt.  Luke loves it and wants to use it now.  I had to explain to him what I else I have to do to finish it.  Now he is always asking me about backing and batting.  It is so cute.                            

These pictures are not so good but I just didn't have it in me to make more an effort to take better pictures.  I haven't decided yet how I want to quilt it.  I will probably do an allover design.  Maybe I will do bubbles or something.  I could just meander because I do enjoy doing that and love how it looks.  But I do want to try new things too.  It will be a little while before I get around to quilting this so I have some time.  I welcome suggestions.

Today I am going to link up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I really like how your plus quilt came together. It has a gentle feel to it.

It looks lovely Christine, really sweet and I agree with Wombaquilts it has a gentle feel to it.

I wonder what will you do in the end for the quilting part ?

Hi Christine,

I came across you in the comments of Rose Vally.

What a nice quilt you've made. Must have taken you lots and lots of hours. Its colours are very holidays-like. A plaid to use at a beach, or in the grass having a picnic.

I'm a fabric maniac myself and quilt now and then.

There's a giveaway at this moment at my blog.
