First of all i thought I would sneak in a few pics of my grandkids. Jarrod and Lindsey’s little angel, Imrie Reign Alexander.
and of course Nolan delivering a Valentine package to his cousin.
I am participating in the third annual American Patchwork & Quilting Quilt-Along.
This year the folks at Meredith have all kinds of projects to make as you Quilt-along. Two patterns in APQ, one in Quilts and More, and one online, all with one theme—this year it’s plus-sign quilts. They are calling the quilt-along “It All Adds Up.”
I have always loved the simplicity of the RED CROSS logo
and now to see all the popularity of Cross/Plus Sign quilts, I knew I
wanted needed a reason to quilt-along.
I had a hard time making up my mind on which one to make. I started out with Susan Ache’s version but then had an idea of who I wanted to make this quilt for. The end product needed to be a bigger quilt and I didn’t want to make more blocks, so I decided to morph Susan Ache and Pat Bravo together. They both live in Florida so they do have that in common. Makes sense to me!
My version is based on a 2″ finished grid.
