+1



A ‘+’ quilt for a NEW ADDITION to an excellent family.



Nudge, nudge! Wink, wink! Do you get it? Do you get it?!

Um. Yes. I do always over-think things.



Crafted with love (considered wonk) and seriously inspired by this and this,



as well as this organic approach to the quilting bizzo.



Hey! Two bloggy posts in as many days. I AM ON FIRE! Actually, the kids are at Grandma and Grandad’s house. I am now rushing off to urgently NOT clean, bake, or tackle washing. I’ll be sorry later but I can already feel the wind in my hair.



I hope you have the same kind of wind-in-your-hair weekend. x

It is lovely. I may steal the + 1 idea for a friend of mine. lovely knots.

The only problem may be too much wind in the hair with this weather!
That quilt is a beauty. I'm loving a bit of yellow and grey with blue to bind them.

"Positively" stunning quilt!
My stuff also has lots of 'love'.
Enjoy the childfree breeze.
Funny how no-one wants mine these holidays. A whiff of chicken pox and they're all running for the hills.

Cinnamon said...

Love the quilt. And the +1. And the ignoring of the cleaning, baking, laundry. I'm doing the same. :)

Kylie said...

Naturally Carol said...

Stomper Girl said...

Love the quilt and the ontime bunting. I love making bunting! As for blogging, I feel like I can't get the proper thoughtful time in front of the computer during school holidays so I'm impressed you've managed two posts, yes I am.

Mel said...

OMG! Love it to DEATH! How on earth will you be able to give that away?! I so want to do a + quilt for my bestie but life is definitely getting in the way of my quilting abilities at the moment I must say! Ugh, just LOVE it!

Astrid said...

From here forth, I do decree that ALL binding must be striped. What a special idea, and with that +1 detail, how could someone 'knot' know it was from you?

Planet Penny said...

Gorgeous, LOVE those colours!

martine said...

I do get it & its fabulous! I especially love the french-knot typography: +1. Gorgeous!!!!!

Duyvken said...

Love it! I am also working on a grey and yellow cross quilt but it isn't looking anywhere near as beautiful as this. *sigh* PS I am totally stealing that +1 idea - genius!

jodi said...

Oh Tania, this is something so very special. I love all its pluses.

As for your camping trip - heavenly...especially those jacket potatoes. mmmmm x

Sally said...

I am so jealous of your french knots. They're SO good.
Great quilt. Stunning. A treasure for sure.
