Finished Blue Plus Quilt

The third quilt I finished for Christmas is this blue plus quilt for my brother-in-law. While my sister-in-law had been quick to respond to my request for favorite colors, my BIL didn't say a word (so typical...just teasing J!). Since blue is my favorite color and I have at least two times as much blue fabric in my stash than any other color, I figured it'd be a good, manly choice for my BIL's quilt.

I made a plus quilt for a friend's baby in 2012 and I really loved how it turned out. (Funny how such a simple pattern can be just what the doctor ordered.) I decided to use that pattern for my BIL's quilt too. So, I pulled out a variety of blue prints ranging from light blue to royal blue to navy to teal and cut them up into five-inch charm squares.

One of my goals at the beginning of 2013 was to make more pieced quilt backs, which is not something I like doing. For this quilt, though, I used up some larger blue and green cuts of fabric to make a simple back, nothing fancy.

I quilted straight lines on each of the seams and bound the quilt in a variety of blue prints. The quilt measures about 67 inches square.
