Rainbow Plus Quilt

This past weekend I wanted to do a project that was simple and quick.  Also with fabric I already had on hand.  I had enough batting for a small baby quilt so baby quilt it was.  I have really been wanting to make a quilt with Riley Blake's Tone on Tone Dots for awhile and thought this would be the perfect project.

My supply for the Pink was running low so I just left it out which worked out well for the pattern I used.  Speaking of the pattern I used the Inside Out Quilt pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew.  It really is two patterns in one with the plus quilt being the other pattern.

The cutting instructions are for charm packs or a layer cake but I just cut 5" stripes and then cut the required size of fabric from there.  Pretty simple!  The piecing went by really fast.  I love chain piecing!!

I chose a Medium Rainbow Chevron for the back.  I kinda wished I had the large chevron but Medium will do. I struggled a little on how to quit it.  I tried a few different things at first but ended up pulling it out and opting for straight straigtish stitching.  Straight line quilting is like the little black can never go wrong with it on a quilt.

The rainbow dot fabric was perfect for the binding.  I love how bright and fun this quilt is.  It stitched up quick and with out any headaches.  A huge Plus in my book! I also put the quilt in my shop and can be purchased here Rainbow Plus Quilt

I think next I will do the Inside Out Pattern with these 

Happy Quilting
