Modern Plus Sign Quilts Blog Hop + Day 5

This week flew by and today we are sharing 2 more from Modern Plus Sign Quilts, Row Addition and Transparency Chains.  Plus...enter to win some FreeSpirit charm packs.

Row Addition

Need a fast baby quilt?  Row Addition is the answer.  You'll need only 5 solids (or prints) and a contrasting fabric for the plus sign quilts and you are in business.

Cheryl used beautiful Cotton Supreme Solids by RJR Fabrics for this version of Row Addition and quilted it in gentle wavy lines.

Next up is one of my favorites from the book, Transparency Chains.  I've never made an Irish Chain quilt and this one should be on the top of my list to make.

Transparency Chains is made from Cirrus Solids by Cloud9 Fabrics.  Strip piecing makes the piecing a breeze.
