Several years ago, while working at an amazing place, I bought a ton of this American Jane Recess fabric by Sandy Klop. I always meant to make a quilt with it. I made some other stuff, Jessica made quite a few things, yet it wasn't until this year that I finally decided to treat myself to the quilt I wanted.
Almost six years it took me, I may be a bit slow....
I'm kinda glad I waited though because if I'd have made it back then, it wouldn't be this quilt.
I love this quilt.
I used only one of each pattern/color for the pluses. The background is blue dot stripe. No pattern, just cutting up 4.5 inch squares and seeing what happened. Pieced and quilted with Aurifil thread.
I backed the whole thing in Maggie's dress navy.
It lives on my couch for now and it makes me happy every time I look at it. It made me even happier to come home one day to it being used as a fort by two sweet babes.
Because that's what it's all about.
