Plus Squared Quilt Pattern

This Plus Squared quilt really is my favorite quilt.. ha.   Although for real I think this one is.   I forget about it because I gave it away…!!   More about that later.

This is my Plus Squared Quilt Pattern which was first featured in Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine.   It was my first magazine commission!   This is not the one that was featured and I’ll blog that one another time.

quiltylove_emilydennis-3388 I made this version of this quilt to test the pattern I wrote for Love Patchwork and Quilting so I was never able to share it along the way.   I used Vanessa Goertzen’s Gooseberry line mixed with Robert Kaufman Yarn Dyed Essex Linen.  I used only the cool colors from this line and loved how they mixed with the grey linen.   Linen gives quilts such beautiful texture and weight.  It does shrink quilt a bit and can be a little fussy to work with as it stretches easily.

quiltylove_emilydennis-3369 quiltylove_emilydennis-3376 The Plus Squared quilt pattern is a good one for the newer quilter as it’s all squares and rectangles.   There are some piecing shortcuts in the pattern making this one a fairly simple and fast one to put together.

The white sashing around the plus signs really make the fabrics pop.

This quilt also works perfectly with Moda’s new Treat size precuts!  quiltylove_emilydennis-3387 quiltylove_emilydennis-3373 I quilted zig zags on this one using my walking foot.  It’s a super simple stitch that looks good on just about any quilt! quiltylove_emilydennis-3375 quiltylove_emilydennis-3402 quiltylove_emilydennis-3416 quiltylove_emilydennis-3419 I did let this Plus Squared quilt go to my sister.

I have a large family and I’m working on getting a quilt into each sibling’s home.   My sister Molly is newly married so I told her to pick a quilt.   I might have died just a little inside when she picked my favorite one…lol..   But isn’t that what quilting is all about?   Making beautiful things for other people.  :)   I know she will appreciate it much more than I would have with my stacks of other quilts.   Plus, we can always make another, right!?   quiltylove_emilydennis-3421
This quilt is backed and binded with this fun navy polka dot fabric.
