Oh Boy!

Youngest nephew goes into hospital in a few weeks time, for major surgery on his leg.  He will be in a wheel chair for 6 weeks post op, so I thought a cosy quilt might be just the ticket!

Doesn't that gorgeous blue sky compliment the quilt perfectly!

I've admired quite a few of these Plus quilts around blogland, and thought this would make a great 'boy' quilt pattern.

I recently bought a few turquoise & navy fqs and combined them with other blues and reds from my stash to get this quilt top up to 60" x 70" ( a few shirts may have been harmed in the making of this quilt top!).

And with the leftover squares I made a giant Plus for the back with some lush royal blue linen and solid red.

The original pattern for this quilt is here, although I didn't follow it and have sized mine differently from the original.  It's a really easy pattern, but you do need a large design board or floor space to lay out all the pluses.

The question now is - how to quilt it?
