Cheryl (Meadow Mist Designs) and Paige (Quilted Blooms) have us piecing together (40) small plus blocks this month in the Modern Plus Sampler QAL. With a bit of chain piecing spaced out over a few days, my collection of blocks came together. I opted to oversize my blocks and trim them down to final size per the instructions within the book and I only made one cutting mistake, resulting in the need to make an additional block.
I sewed blocks together in groupings of 5, and arranged them in plus or “x” shapes on my design wall as I completed them.
The background for the blocks is Kona Regal, a beautiful and rich purple which is actually rather tricky to photograph. The small plus signs themselves are Kona Silver.
I really like having a few QALs to look forward to working on each month and am surprised that I currently have 3 ongoing projects: the Modern Plus Sampler QAL, the Aurifil BOM, and the Splendid Sampler II. Since the Aurifil BOM for September was just released, I suppose it’s time to go tackle that block for the month next!
