Scrap Pluses H2H

 For my second H2H quilt I used 2'' squares, I had an overabundance of them. Even after making the quilt I still have lots left.

sorting out the 2'' squares, these were not the only ones I had

The pluses for the top used 648 squares, 24 across and 27 down.

For the red and black border, I used 2'' squares. I used up different values of black from my black scraps, the red squares were cut from a 1/2 yard piece that I've had for a while. I think it was a Jinny Beyer piece.

I see some pluses should have been moved around for better colour placement

I bound the quilt with the same red I used in the border. For the quilting in the body of the quilt, I did loops and hearts. In the border, I did some straightish lines, and in black squares, between the red, I did elongated figure 8's.

This quilt will also be going to Ronald MacDonald House in London, Ontario.  It finishes at 43'' x 47''. I used Hobbs 80/20 batting, my favourite batting, and Superior So Fine #50 403 Putty for the body of the quilt and 411 Black in the borders. 

I will be linking up to Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
