Siblings Together Giant x&+ Quilt

Hello everyone! I’m so excited today to finally show you the Siblings Together quilt from when I was Queen Been (ha!) back in November. I’ve been thwarted by bad weather making it really difficult to get a photo that did the fabric and quilt justice but I think I’ve finally managed it. So are you ready?!

Ta dah!!!!!

The quilt is based on a Giant x&+ block which finishes at 20″ using Mimi Chez Moi by Moda with some Kona Snow added in for a bit of calm.

Quilting this was an interesting (read challenging) process! It’s the biggest quilt I’ve done to date and although I started off pin basting lets just say that after some unpicking I’m now a big fan of spray basting!!!! It is straight-line quilted 1/4″ either side of the x and + seams which created some fun extra crosses within the crosses!

The backing is an extra wide Botanics in Yarrow and I love it! It helps to balance and complement the quilt top, and did I mention that it’s Botanics? What’s not to love?! The binding is a ‘scrappy’ collection of three different colours of the same print from the Mimi range.

So, quilt stats:

Pattern::: Giant x&+ block
Fabrics::: Mimi Chez Moi by Moda, Kona Snow and extra wide Botanics Yarrow
Wadding::: Sew Simple Super-Soft Cotton Blend
Size::: 60″ x 80″

And of course a big thank you to all my Bee mates for making the gorgeous blocks for me!
