Check Plus Quilt

Check Plus Quilt made with Cotton and Steel fat quarters

Here is another quilt to show on the blog today.   I finished the top in June and it has been back from the quilter for a couple of months.  
It just seems to take me forever to get a combination of someone to hold the quilt and it is still daylight outside and it is a nice day!  Okay enough about that, let's talk about the quilt.

The pattern is Check Plus and I found it in the Quilty Magazine Nov-Dec 2014 Issue

The fabric is Cotton and Steel fat quarters.  I bought this in August 2014 on a St Louis quilt shop Row by Row shopping spree.  Meredith and myself were going to take a friend on this same adventure in August 2015, so I knew I wanted to get these fat quarters sewn up before I probably bought more!

Sorry for the dappled sunlight, I really didn't notice it until I started looking at the pictures.

The quilting pattern is loops, which I love.  Some of you have asked, I send my quilts out to a long arm quilter in my same town.  She does beautiful work and always is getting new designs.  I am also amazed how she sees a quilt and its fabric to help suggest the perfect quilting design.

In the sewing room.... I have been cleaning and organizing, which took better than half a day.  Oh, does it look and feel better.  Books were donated to the library and fabric was designated for projects. Reduction of quilting fabric is my goal, and I am doing a good job of that goal.  Quilts are being made and only fabric being bought is for quilt backs.  I have about 5 quilts to make and then I will concentrate on some scrappy quilts to reduce my odds and ends.
