Greek Plus Puss Quilt

I am so pleased to share this quilt with you today! A few weeks ago, Rossie at Fresh Modern Quilts asked for pattern testers for her new quilt design. I was lucky to be accepted, and I got started right away.

I ended up switching the low volume fabrics into the plus shape instead of using them for the background - I love the different look it gives! I used an assortment of solids from my stash for the puss in the corner blocks. All of the background fabrics are black and grey, and I love the pop of color from those solids! The pattern is well written, and very straightforward. The quilt came together very quickly once I had everything cut out!

I backed the quilt with Kona Raisin, and used the same great silver and white stripe for the binding that I used on my woven quilt. I quilted it using diagonal lines through each section of the block. 

Samantha (my oldest) keeps telling me how beautiful this quilt is, and how she wants a quilt like this for her bed. :)

Best part? Rossie gave me a copy of the pattern to give away! All you have to do is leave a comment, and if you feel like it, let me know what quilt you're working on right now - I love new inspiration and ideas! Comments close Thursday at midnight CDT and I'll choose a winner then! Please make sure you leave your email address if you are a no-reply blogger commenter, otherwise I can't reach you! I will also update this post on Friday with the winner, so check back!

**Edited to add** Trish - you are the winner of the pattern! Thanks for the comments everyone!
