Thanks for sharing links to your favorite dresden quilts in the comments of my last post. It was fun to see what catches your eye! But when it came down to it, I just couldn't do it. I couldn't proceed confidently in any one direction with dresdens so I've opted to do something complete different. I think you should always feel 100% "in" at the start of any quilt!
For an entire year this stack of "new" 2014 Kona Cotton colors has been lounging about, inviting some play. They're approximately 1/3 yard cuts of mostly bright, summery shades. I decided to combine that happy palette with scraps in the makings of a simple plus quilt.
Not interlocking pluses, just plain old plus blocks. 8" finished, 2" wide plus shapes.
Haaaaaahhhhhhh, I needed something this simple anyways. Eleni's just home from a week long hospital stay, her second post-NICU hospitalization for respiratory issues. Turns out she has obstructive apnea and some aspiration that combine to land us in the hospital. I'm zonked, brain and bones.
Here's to the healing properties of color, color.
