Weathervane Top Done

Yesterday, I was really in the mood for spring.  So I pulled out my Weathervane quilt.  These colors scream spring and everything bright and sunny :)  My goal was to get the top completed.

I ended up going with a little plus sign in the sashing to break up all the white.  It just became too white for my liking.  The border on the outside also helps complete the plus signs.  As a math teacher how could I resist?

Overall it came out just as I had imagined it in my head, I love when that happens!  Now I just need a plan to top quit.  Probably going to go with some simple straight line stitches for this one.

Oh the happiness of this quilt just makes me smile!

Sew long for now, 



  1. Very pretty. I love how you used the plus signs, that was an awesome design choice:) Your quilt makes me smile too--it's so perfect:)

  2. I agree... Those plus signs were a great call. Such a pretty top! Love the soft, pastel fabrics you went with, and the added pops those solids contribute keeps your eyes moving. Very Sweet, Chelsea! I love the Weathervane block!

  3. Very springy and pretty! I'm going to join the choir - the plus signs are awesome!! :)

  4. I adore this quilt top. Such bright and happy colours.

  5. Very spring-y! The red in a few of the blocks really makes the quilt pop. The plus signs are a great addition as it would have been really white (and maybe a bit dull?) without them.

  6. Oh this is a pretty quilt! It's so cheerful and certainly welcomes Spring. :)
