This is my take on a plus sign quilt! I've been seeing alot of them lately and I just love the way it looks! I made this as a wedding present for my best friend and her new husband which should explain my cheeztastic project title Smiley (also who else is singing the u plus me equals us song? me? just me? cool)

it is a slight queen size, will cover the bed with about 6 inches extra on each side, finished size after washing and drying is 77 x 84

detail of my leafy/vine quilting, I really enjoyed this pattern as a new way to do an all over meandering type pattern

Wow, really classy. I love the colours - the very definition of modern quilting. Interesting, very sophisticated pallet, elegant, warm, restrained. the back is awesome. The quilting is beautiful. Great job!!

I did! Although I had a very frustrating time on that particular machine I used, so I'm goign to have to find a new one to rent...

I've got to know how you made the tag!!!

Love the patchwork back too. How long did it take you?

thanks! I got a fat quarter printed through spoonflower with my little arrow and name graphic printed on it about every 2 inches. Then I cut a 2 inch wide strip out making sure to place the graphic just to the right of the center mark that way when I pieced it into my double fold binding the tag would line up on the back of the quilt! It was a lot less tedious than it sounds.

As for time, all told, the entire quilt top and back piecing took me about a month of working on it a couple nights a week after work and then spending about 5 hours a night the last 3 nights working to finish it before my quilting appointment!
