Brian chose the fabrics for his Plus Quilt.
When I decided to make Brian a quilt, his only request was that it cover him from “head to toe.” Well, when I finished the quilt top, he neglected to mention that he meant from “head to toe if his feet are sticking up.” So I decided to add a border around the quilt to make up the difference. I bought the border and backing fabric online during a sale. I had ordered binding fabric too, but they were out of stock, so I used some leftover fabric from the backing and made a mish-mash of it. I think it looks much more charming that way.The blue fabric is really cool. It is like architectural blueprint designs on it. I thought it was fun and when I showed Brian he really liked it. It seemed to bring out the engi-NERD in him.
