I made this quilt in August when I was at my parents’ house–I can’t believe I’m just sharing it today! I must love this design, as I just finished quilting another plus quilt, this time out of Laura Gunn’s Cosmos line.
I used my walking foot (and bright blue thread on the front and brown on the back) to quilt (mostly) straight vertical lines. I eyeballed it, quilting lines approximately every 3/4”. I thought it would be fun to do cross hatch quilting on just one of the plus blocks. A straight line quilting tip: reduce your stitch length at the beginning and end of each row. That way, your stitches are less likely to come unravelled around the edges.
Note: If you use a layer cake for a plus quilt and want your squares to measure 5”, you will have to be creative in some of the plus blocks, as you will only have 4 charms instead of the required 5. I knew this going in, but just wanted to make sure you do, too!
