WIP Wednesday - Am I Inside Out?

I've been slowly making progress on the Inside Out pattern by Allison @ Cluck Cluck Sew.  I generally call my quilts based on the pattern or some other distinguishing feature, such as the orange quilt or the charity quilt.  I only just realized that the two versions of the pattern have two different names -- Inside Out Quilt with prints as the background and Plus Quilt with a solid as the background.  They are both still a plus quilt, but it seemed fancier to call it Inside Out.  So my Inside Out quilt is now the Plus Quilt.

This is a great pattern suitable for chain piecing.  This is the middle of the block.


And the tops of the plus.


Which turns into a 36 x 42 inch baby quilt.


The blocks are offset so there is no matching of seams to sew the rows together.


I used a new-to-me Kona for the background:  Natural


The blocks were made from charm squares I received in a swap last year with my guild, Maritime Modern Quilt Guild.


Allison tells you how to cut your block so that directional prints line up.


And once again...time to think about how to quilt this.

  2. I love that pattern! I made one in the plus version with one odd in-side-out block. It was a fun make. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh, having directions to keep directional prints in the same orientation is a detail that makes me happy. Huge bonus points to Allison and her pattern! :) The plus quilt looks great - I'd go for an all over boxy meander, myself.

  10. I love when you don't have to match seams. It makes things so much easier. The pattern definitely makes for a cute quilt.

  11. What a wonderful quilt. Would a square stipple work for the quilting?
    I follow the same sort naming convention for my quilts - glad to see someone else does the same.

  15. I think you should only quilt the Kona Natural.... and with something dense. Those pluses will pop right out!
