Finished Dancing Plus Quilt
With encouragement form blog readers - thank you all! - I decided to leave the quilting as is, organic wavy vertical lines every 1-1/2 to 2" and curvy diagonal lines between the plus motifs.
This quilt is destined to become a gift. It started as bee blocks for my STLMQG bee, Sew Bee It. Thanks, girls, for making blocks for me! The blocks were so addictive, I just kept making more, so it turned out to be a nice sofa throw size, 60 x 75".
If you're interested, here's a tutorial for making the Dancing Plus blocks. These little blocks finish at 6", and there are 120 blocks in this quilt. Some dance to the left, some to the right, and occasionally there's one that's actually straight. The layout is half-drop columns, with a plain piece of background fabric to fill in the top or bottom of a column as needed. I definitely filled up my design wall creating this one!
