Today I'm adding Dancing Plus to the Scrappy category. Lots of varied low volume backgrounds here, and lots of cute prints. No particular color scheme except mostly modern-ish prints.
Dancing Plus, 2016, 60" x 75"
Dancing Plus is the result of my Sew Bee It bee blocks. Last year I gave the girls in the bee instructions for the block (tutorial here). They made blocks for me, lots of blocks, and I made a few more, and a few more, and, well, you know how it goes, I got carried away and pretty soon I had enough for the whole quilt.
Dancing Plus is destined to become a Christmas gift for a happy family with several kids. It's sofa throw sized, so I'm sure it'll get a lot of use.
I quilted it with random wavy lines, mostly vertical, with a few curvy diagonal lines between the plusses as well. Very wonky! Sturdy enough to hold up but soft enough to drape nicely. I bound it in a black & white bias stripe print to contain all that busy-ness.
