Using a selective color scheme for the X & + quilt pattern
To complete the range of patterns for my newest fabric line DAY IN PARIS I'm introducing the X & + quilt pattern.
With its 83" x 83" it covers a queen size bed well, and you can always add a wider border to make it fit your bed size. I picked only the greens, greys and whites of the collection and based on the size of Fat Quarters.
The basic block of X & Plus is easy to piece. What makes the quilt special and a bit whimsical is the fact, that you deliberately incorporate some "mistakes" here and there. Doesn't mean sewing mistakes (although that can happen too, but is for sure not meant deliberately). More in a sense of fabric placement, so that the block is not totally symmetrical, see the detail picture above.
When it came to quilting I thought a not too tight geometrical pantograph might fit great.
The selection of colors has a big impact on the overall look of this quilt as you can see from the interpretation of X & + by Gudrun von Ohlen. She went for the orange and pink colors from my fabric line FOR YOU and gave this quilt a completely different face.
