Plus Baby!

Number 7 on my Q2 Finish-A-Long list is ready to go!
Little Him was born early, on Mothers Day, even as I was finishing this up!
It was special to be working on a sweet baby quilt on Mothers Day, thinking about Mama! It was extra special then, to find out he had been born that day too!
"Plus Baby", an original design, finished at 40"x40".
The background is Essex Yarn Dyed in Aqua, and the colors are all Rowan Shot Cottons. 
When I shared this quilt on Instagram, someone commented that it looked like "a whisper", which I thought was very sweet!
I had such fun coming up with this plus design!
  I made the "Us Plus" quilt for this same couple when they were married!
Also out of Essex Yarn Dyed (olive) and the same jelly rolls of Rowan shot cottons!
I used simple straight lines for the quilting.
Such a fun little quilt!

Now that it has stopped raining and our roads have dried, I shall pop this in the mail to them this week! 
Welcome, wee one!

I love Plus quilts, and this one is pretty and different. I like it because it isn't overwhelmed with "pluses"!
I keep seeing "shot cottons" mentioned and finally Googled it. Oh my gosh, they are beautiful! I'm kind of sorry I looked at them. ;)

A "whisper" is right ... I love the simple graphic design coupled with the soft palette. Beautiful!
