Today, I am happy to be a part of Cheryl Brickey and Paige Alexander’s book launch for their new publication Modern Plus Sign Quilts. This new book has sixteen patterns for all kinds of projects, all using the plus sign as part of the design. I picked the Pinwheel Plus design to quilt. I liked the way it blended traditional blocks into a more modern design.
The size in the book is larger, but I made a smaller version for a special project. I decided to use a floral print for the plus signs, a pretty green for the pinwheels, and a white background. If you love these fabrics, I have some yardage for sale in my Etsy store – Craftnut’s Studio.
You can get a copy of this new book using my Amazon affiliate link – Modern Plus Sign Quilts.
I thought the floral plus signs and this cute little bunny was sweet for spring on the guest bed. I quilted it with a swirly pantograph to had more movement to the design, like the pinwheels are spinning in the wind.
I plan to send this quilt to Little Lambs in conjunction with Sarah’s Hands2Help charity quilt drive.
For the book launch, there is a Modern Plus Quilts blog hop, with bloggers making every single quilt in the book so you can see lots of inspiration and ideas for interpreting Cheryl and Paige’s designs. Each day has two designs with two or three bloggers featuring that design. The hop spans two weeks, and includes daily giveaways on both Cheryl’s blog Meadow Mist Designs, and Paige’s blog Quilted Blooms. You can also order signed copies of their book on their blogs. You are going to be busy today, catching up and entering the giveaways! Each giveaway is open for entries for seven days, so the first few are closed now, but the rest are still open and more are coming.
