It all adds up to something?


Tanya was confused when I started this project.  She could not understand what I was doing.  I told her I was going to make a plus quilt.  If you look at my http://pinterest.com/rhealey101/quilts/ board on pintrest you will see many + Quilts that I have pinned over time.


In this photo here you can see my mess, I mean my quilt above the mess in my closet.  This is going to be a quilt of plus's all added together.  Each block is 4 1/2 inches wide.  It is out of the Reunion line which I have I believe 22 different fabrics from.  It is surprising how slow this is going trying to keep the 5 blocks together and sew them into rows.  I put 5 rows on the desk, all lined up and went to check on baby Julia.  I came back to a cat who had made himself comfortable while stretching out on my lined up rows.  Oh well this is going to be a cute quilt when done.


Speaking of the cute little one, she is looking cuter by the day and she is enjoying her quilt Hearts and Flowers which was one of the first quilts I ever made.

The plus quilt looks like a great scrap quilt.

Hey Richard, I really like the plus quilt. The whole idea is great= think positive etc. And I like the layout.
I know it's hard to resist temptation and lay it out as you go, but if you cut your stacks of 5- matching patches and then lay it out all at once ready to sew you might save yourself some time and aggravation?! My charitable efforts have been focused on quilts for cancer patients lately and I think this would be a great pattern. Thanks for the inspiration! cheers, Claire W.

So simple but so hard! I love Julia's socks that match her quilt.
