WIP Wednesday! Rainbow Goodness!

Man oh Man! There is A LOT of excitement going on over here at SewPsyched!! 
A tidbit of my Being Charming is a Plus quilt, to whet your appetites!!
Here it is pre-assembly...
Made entirely with Kona Cotton Solids. Greys and black from a Silent Film layer cake, and Charm centers from a Kona Summer Colors Charm Pack. The Plus arms are from an Elizabeth Hartman design roll. 
I am quilting it with a wonky rainbow of lines in Aurifil 50 wt threads. This is just the beginning.... There will be a Lot more color!

What FUN! 

This quilt will last forever!! The Kona cottons are broadcloth, the batting is Warm and Natural 100% cotton, and the backing is a surprise! Ha! 
But you will love it :)

When this quilt is finished, I will auction it off in the SewPsyched! Care Along II. 


I prefer to have Care Alongs, rather than straight up sales, when selling my own makes, because, Hey, why not make the World a better place and give some family a lovey at the same time??

This Care Along II will auction this lap sized quilt, with 50% of the proceeds, after shipping, going to the winner's charity or person of their choice. 
In my last Care Along I, the winners chose various charities, and one chose an individual, to receive half of the proceeds. How nice is that?! I love it when folks want to make the world a better place!

When it is finished, I will put notices up on a Finish It Up Friday, and over on IG. I'm thinking of running the auction over there, as it is easier for more people to see where their bid stands. What do you think? Would you rather see it here, on the blog? 

I am SO looking forward to telling you other fun and exciting news that is coming up!
But, you'll have to wait, for now ;)

Have a Marvelous Day!

  4. Hi Lori, I love your Plus quilt top. Plus blocks are my favorite. I really like how the different grays to black backgrounds play off the bright color centers. I love forward to seeing how you quilt it.

  5. I like how the background in each row is a different colour. Great idea.

  6. What a lovely quilt! And I like the idea of a Care Along, so that others can participate as well!
