Increase Quilt / Cross Stitch Version

Hi friends!

The new Increase pattern is now available and I am so excited! Increase Quilt takes a traditional plus block quilt and makes it modern. Use the different blocks for color value change or scale of pattern in a printed fabric. For example: light to dark on a shade of blue - or smaller floral prints at the top and a large scale floral at the bottom. There are also fabric requirements for a 1-color quilt if you prefer a more minimalist feel. This quilt is perfect for both confident beginners and those who love a clean and minimalist look.

There is a coloring template link in all sizes: Baby, Throw, Twin, Full, Queen and King included in the PDF pattern for you to plan out your project. Printed patterns will be here in a couple of weeks so if you prefer that style or are a shop interested in stocking this pattern I will have a pre-sale up soon.

I quilted this on my Janome 6700p using straight line quilting and my dual feed foot as my guide leaving 1/2” spacing between each line. Big stitch binding using Aurifil 12wt thread in Fuchsia 4020.

We had a few days of heavy snow here in Indianapolis so it was fun to run out and take some snowy quilt photos!
