This Plus and Minus quilt is made up using the new At Then Came June Kona Cotton bundle. These solid fabrics are so bright and happy. It sure was fun sewing up this plus quilt in these gorgeous solids.

Plus and Minus was released a while back but recently got an update. The original version had more white space in it. I made up this quilt while designing the quilt since I couldn’t decide which way to go with it. Since then there have been many requests for this more fabric focused version so the pattern now includes all the sizes of both.

Beginner friendly quilt pattern

The Plus and Minus quilt pattern is a beginner friendly quilt pattern. It’s a fun one that goes together quickly. The quilt pattern includes instructions for pressing so those seams all nest nicely. Nesting seams usually means a faster finish since less pins can be used.

2 Versions included

The quilt pattern now includes two different versions of this plus quilt. This solids quilt is Version One. You can see Version two here.

All the quilt sizes

Plus and Minus includes instructions for a crib size, throw size, queen size and king size quilt

Precut or stash friendly quilt

This modern plus quilt is written around fat quarters. The pattern also includes cutting instructions for 1/4 yards and fat eighths. It’s actually a good stash quilt since you can use a smaller cut of fabric for each block.

I quilted this bright and colorful Plus and Minus quilt using my favorite wavy stitch on the Janome MC6700p. I’ve been using this stitch quite a bit lately because it seems to work on every quilt and looks way harder than it is!

I have a tutorial for zig zag quilting with a walking foot here. This is the same technique but just uses a different stitch.

It’s nearly impossible to photograph quilts these days without adding a cute little baby on it πŸ˜‰ She loves all of the attention she gets when she is my quilt model so it’s a win win.
