Dancing Plus Progress


My second Dancing Plus quilt is coming along. I spent some time in the sewing room during the recent ice storm and made good progress. The first four columns are sewn together into a panel. The middle three columns are also joined into a panel. The rest of the blocks are still just placed on the wall, ready to be sewn into columns. I'm hoping to get this to the finished flimsy stage this week.


Modern? Not modern? Doesn't matter. I'm still loving this palette. If I remembered to count every time I cut, there are 52 different light background fabrics and 57 dark plus fabrics.

I don't have a purpose for this quilt, but this one may have to be a keeper. It just feels right to me. Have you ever felt like that, when you were making a quilt and the colors and pattern just felt totally "you?"

  1. I don't really see the need to categorize every quilt I make, and if it is fun and feels like a keeper, that's even better! :)

  3. I really like how your chubby pluses seem to be dancing on the quilt. Great job so far. Hope you get it to flimsy and share it next week!

  4. Yes! I have felt like that about a color combination or a design! Modern or not, when you make something that makes you happy that's all that matters!

  5. I love the colors! There have been many quilts I made as gifts that I felt that way about.

  7. I think the colors are YOU. This one should be kept by you for sure. Wasn't it great to have an extra day for sewing this weekend? I got a lot done, but didn't take any pictures. I always forget. :)

  8. It's wonderful I can see why you want to keep it for yourself.

  9. It's a gorgeous quilt. There have been some that during the process of making them I've realized they stay here, no other home will do.

So sorry to have to use word verification, but the spam has gotten unbearable lately.
