Plus Infinity Quilt Pattern | RJR Fabrics What Shade Are You?

I’m so excited to finally get to share my latest pattern with you!! 

This quilt has been a long time in the making - since early June in fact! And I'm so excited to finally get to share her with you! Secret sewing is fun, but, gosh, is it hard not being able to share ALL the details with you!! 

I designed the Plus Infinity quilt pattern specifically for the What Shade Are You blog series. 

Haven’t heard of it? Well, you’re in for a treat!

The Plus Infinity quilt pattern is now available in the shop.

RJR Fabrics has been hosting the What Shade Are You series over on their Quilt with Love site for quite some time now (website is no longer available). They invite quilters, sewers and makers to participate, give them carte blanche to make whatever they want using their Cotton Supreme Solids fabric collection and allow them to explore their creativity. Fun, right?!! 

Suffice it to say, I was completely excited, honoured and jumping for joy at the chance to play! 

Just look at these colours I got to choose from!

To say it was a tough decision would be an understatement. But I managed 😉 

I initially thought I would go with coral (you know my love for coral!), but I kept being drawn to all these gorgeous shades of blues and greens.

I just love how the pattern showcases the various hues beautifully! But I really adore how the colours change depending on what colour they are paired next to. Ah, the fun of playing with colourways!

PATTERN FEATURES

The beauty of the Plus Infinity quilt pattern (well, all my quilt patterns, in fact) is that there is lots of room to make it your very own. I've included a colouring page to make this even easier for you to plan out. No need to cut into your beloved fabric stash until you’re 100% satisfied with the choices you’ve made. 

And I've included two sizes - a generous lap size measuring about 70" x 70" (because who doesn’t love to be wrapped all snuggled in a quilt on the couch?!) and a queen size finishing at 91" x 91". 

The best part is, she comes together really quickly! Don't you love a quick finish?! Once you get past squaring up your HST, it's ALL smooth sailing from there on out!

She’s quick to piece due to all the chain piecing involved. So, if you love a good chain piecing session, then this is the pattern for you! Put on your favourite tunes or catch-up on your latest podcasts (here are my current top 5 faves) and enjoy some quality time with your sewing machine! 

Before you know it, you’ll have a fully pieced quilt top ready for basting!

When it came time to quilt, I went for my trusty 40wt Aurifil Cotton Mako Thread in the colour *Light Turquoise. This colour paired perfectly with all the different shades of blues and greens in this quilt. Honestly, I think light turquoise is a new fave of mine, it seems to go with everything! 

For some added texture, I decided to add some big stitch hand quilting using *pearl cotton thread in size 8. If you love texture, then hand quilting is a great way of achieving that. But, if that’s not your jam, there are still lots of quilting options to make this quilt pattern uniquely your own!
