Intertwined Finish! from Dizzy Quilts

I'm noticing now that I've been on a Plus quilt kick lately - but the truth is I'm trying to make quilts from the books and patterns I already own and there are so many quilts I want to make from the Modern Plus Sign Quilts book by Cheryl Brickey and Page Alexander!

Intertwined is another one from the book that I finished and photographed last weekend.


I used my long-hoarded Alison Glass fabric along with some Kona White for the background. The Alison Glass prints are just gorgeous - the colours are so saturated!




I quilted it with ...

Postage Plus Finish from Dizzy Quilts

After what feels like many, many months, I finally have a finish to share. I have to say - being able to sit down at my machine for any length of time and actually get stuff done feels really good.

Postage Plus is a pattern from the book Modern Plus Sign Quilts by Cheryl Brickey and Paige Alexander. This specific quilt was designed by Cheryl. I loved the book's version so much, I pretty much copied it - used blue scraps for the plus sign in the middle along with Kona solids for the bars (not sure which colours exactly).

My list of WIPs for Q2 of the 2019 FAL from Dizzy Quilts

The first part of Q1 was probably my least productive time in the sewing room... ever! Work simply took over every little bit of time I had. But then toward the middle of the quarter, I fell into a rhythm
at work and things got better. I managed to spend a little bit of time in the sewing room in the evening and on weekends and everything was right again!

And I finished a couple of things. First, there was the Emerald Pillow which I completed in February.


And then in March, I finished three quilts!

St-Patrick's Day Quilt ...

Rick Rack Runner from Dizzy Quilts

It seems the busier and crazier things get at work, the more time I need to spend in my sewing room. Well this Rick Rack Runner is my 9th finish off my Q2 2018 FAL List - my most productive quarter yet - so you can imagine just how much time I've spent in my sewing room!


This is a pattern from the Modern Plus Sign Quilts book written by Cheryl Brickey and Paige Alexander. I have been meaning to make another table runner for our dining room for a while now and when I saw the pattern in the book ...

2018 FAL Q1 Finishes and Q2 List from Dizzy Quilts

Now that Q2 of the 2018 FAL has officially started (you can link up your proposed list of finishes here), I thought it would be a good idea to look back at Q1 and plan for Q2.

I was pretty successful with my Q1 list, completing 6 out of 7 projects.


Top row:

Bottom row:
For Q2, the list is a little more ambitious - not sure why, I'm not expecting to have much more time for sewing this quarter, but I wasn't ...

Modern Plus Sign Quilts Blog Hop: Row Addition from Dizzy Quilts

When Cheryl and Paige reached out to me and asked if I'd be willing to participate in the blog hop organized to celebrate the launch of their very first book, I was honoured and really excited to get to play with one of the patterns from the book.

I'm so excited it's my turn to share for Cheryl and Paige's book hop, for their beautiful new book Modern Plus Sign Quilts.  It is a real honour to be a part of this hop and to have had the privilege of making from Cheryl and Paige's designs.  There are 16 brilliant patterns in the book and I had a hard time deciding which to make and in the end, I was delighted to make the Transparency Chain pattern.
