All Over Plus

The "Plus" block...

I had seen it before, but it had not really caught my eye until Chelsea, my bee mate and February Queen Bee asked for one.

After I made one, two, three on the week end, I could not get the idea of a "Plus" quilt off my mind, so tonight, I started cutting.  I have enough low volume fabrics cut for about 10 blocks, plus a couple bright prints for the plus signs.

That's not counting the two that I made at the end of my little cutting session.  Could not leave the room without spending some quality time at the machine.

Needless to say, I am enjoying this project immensely.  And needless to say, none of my neglected WIPs are being worked on...

Wanna see great examples of "Plus" quilts? have a look at Adrianne's and Rachel's versions.

Hope you are working on a fabulous project that excites you!

Linking up to the Needle and Thread Network for WIP Wednesday. 


  1. Oh, these are gorgeous, Dominique! Love the mix of low volume fabrics with the bright "plus" fabrics.

  2. Oh no! More blocks I want to make! And you've got me thinking about ordering low volume fat quarter collections on-line. Good thing I'm not fabric fasting!

  3. I like the pluses. I've been wanting to try it myself, so this inspires me!

  4. Thanks for stopping by. Love your Plus quilt project :)
    My blog is on Wordpress which is a no reply blogger by default. Will try to resolve the issue.

  5. Your plus quilt is fantastic! You know I'm a fan of the crosses :)

  6. Sometimes I think our creative energy just needs to be used...even for short, fun bursts. Then, we are ready to get back to disciplined things such as our WIP pile :o)


Yay! Comments! I love reading all the comments and do my best to respond, (though sometimes, life gets in the way).
