Modern Plus Quilts Blog Hop | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

Today is also an extra special day here on the blog - it's my stop on the Modern Plus Sign Quilts book hop!  Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs and Paige Alexander of Quilted Blooms have designed 16 quilts based on the Plus Sign block, and there are so many designs to fall in love with in the book!

My Not Finished is two Row Addition baby quilts.  I ♥ this quilt pattern!  My first thought was to make a queen with 20 different grunges, and I even planned it all out in EQ8.  Then I realized I could make two baby quilts to give you ideas on color options for this quick, easy, and fun pattern!  Some boyish chevron fabrics in my stash became the inspiration for which Grunges I used in each quilt.

The second version seems so college preppy, perfect for a newborn boy, right?!?

I had every intention of having these quilts finished for the book hop, even making them quite a bit ahead of time which is not my usual MO, but my longarm began giving me fits while quilting the first quilt and is now in the longarm hospital receiving some special care.  #idonthavetimeforthis #verypoortimingindeed
