Plus Quilt


This is Rae’s Plus quilt and she asked for the Bushberries pantograph.  This is one of my favorite leaf pantographs and looks so nice on this quilt.  I used a medium beige So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.  We are getting a lot of snowfall today and the forecast is for a blizzard tomorrow so no outdoor pictures for the next few days!  This is the first big snowfall we have had since October so I’m enjoying watching the snow fall. It has been a strange winter and for the 20 years I have lived here I have never seen such low snowfall amounts.  We only had about 6” on the ground up to today and usually there is about 2 to 3 feet of snow accumulation on the ground by March.


Rae brought a beautiful dark brown Fireside for the backing that shows off the quilting!


I also had my blog printed into a book again, I do this every year so I have a hard copy of my blog.  I use a company called Blog2Print and if you have a blog and want to try this I would recommend you sign up on the site and then wait a day or two before ordering your book as they email a lot of coupon codes. I usually wait until I receive the 25% to 30% off deals, they rarely go over 30%.


Here is a peek at the inside. 


I now have 8 books in my collection!



  1. Dat is erg leuk, je eigen boeken in de kast.
    Fijn blog heb je, zulke prachtige fotos van de quilts.
    Ik houd van je sneeuw en ijs fotos.

  2. What a pretty pantograph. And I sure wish we would get a good blizzard - we've had so little snow this winter, I'm really worried about the fire season if spring snows don't make up for it. :(

  3. Hi Kathy, I love the quilting on the Plus quilt. Thanks for sharing the Blog2Print - that's such a great idea.

  4. I've been meaning to get my blog into print also, but have procrastinated about it. Thanks for the reminder. Love seeing all the quilts that you machine quilt. Such inspiration.
