Pulsing Plus {Quilt Theory Collection 3}

Blog Hop, Quilt Theory

Every release day for a quilt that has been crafted, refined, and created in secret is exciting, but there is something extra special about the Quilt Theory Collection 3 release for Fall 2017. Let me introduce you to my quilt design for Collection 3: Pulsing Plus.

First, let’s talk some details. Pulsing Plus is charm pack (5-inch square) friendly. It is also layer cake friendly (the background can be make from a uniform layer cake package, should you desire). The pattern explores the popular modern plus using a single block in a creative layout. This is a fast and fun stash buster that creates a 54″ x 67 1/2″ lap quilt!

The design of Pulsing Plus was inspired by thinking about the way a supportive community of people creates ripples of interaction and how in sync people can become. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes with Quilt Theory, and my life has definitely been enriched and blessed by the 6 other generous and caring hearts that collaborate on a near daily basis.

Michelle Bartholomew returned to Urban in Cashmere to photograph the quilts from Collection 3 for Quilt Theory. The Urban in Cashmere owner had just found this vintage hotel luggage cart. Isn’t it a fun prop for Michelle’s photography? Here are a few more of my favorite photos…

I quilted Pulsing Plus with a large spiral on my domestic sewing machine (a Juki TL-2200 QVP Mini) with 50wt Aurifil 2024 (White) using a walking foot. I started the spiral in the center of the central plus and spiraled out to help give the quilt the pulsing, beating feeling that I wanted to convey.

Pulsing Plus was made using Cotton Couture solids provided by Michael Miller Fabrics in Bright White, Raspberry, Peach, Lemon, Turquoise, Caribbean, and Marine (backing and binding).
