Giant Plus - Ta Da!

Giant Plus

I use this quilt all the time, for naps and as an extra layer on my bed. She is one of my favourites. Today I realized I have not shown her off properly here as a finish. She was made with Amy Butler fabrics and a Three Sisters Paris Map print and finished at about 55" x 60".

This quilt took a morning to invent and piece, I shared that with you here.  The quilting was fast too, I just sewed straight lines on either sides of the seams, which makes a nice pattern on the back too. The binding is also an Amy Butler print.

I know why I delayed showing her off. The photos were so blueish, as you can see from the photo of the back, which I took this fall. But then she was on my bed, in use, and no better photos were taken. I also planned to write a pattern for this quilt, but just around then several other giant plus patterns appeared or were located around the internet and I was not sure that folks wanted or needed another. So I put it off and thus put off sharing the finished quilt.

So, does anyone want a pattern for this quilt, or are we content now with all the others available on the internet?

I have one more quilt that I did not post about this year to show off, but I truly need better photos of it, so maybe the light will be ok this afternoon. And with any luck I might even finish one more before it is time to post my FAL finishes, wish me luck.
