Baby Girl Plus Quilt

This past week I finished a plus or cross quilt for a new baby girl.  I wanted to try this pattern because I have seen it floating around, and I really like the way it shows off fabrics.  Each of the squares finishes at 4.5".  It is approximately 36" x 45", and it is a good crib size quilt.  It was a lot of fun pulling out different fabrics from my stash, and using some scraps up to finish it.  I really tried to balance low, medium, and high tones with this one, and play with different patterns, while trying to create a "girl" quilt that wasn't pastels.  I am sending it off to the recipient this week, and I hope she likes it!

I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilt's Finish It Up Friday!  Go check out all the other finishes over there this week!
