    Positive (Plus) Quilt for the 4th

    I truly enjoyed making this quilt and was happy with the way it turned out. Have been wanting to make one for a while.

    A Plus Quilt. That is such a cool design for a scrappy quilt I have never seen one. How did you ever keep it all straight? I am amazed.

    Thanks, it's pretty easy, just have to think in advance and use the design wall. Thank you again. This is a day that I need some positive feelings, cause I am down & out. I just googled plus quilt in their images and found a pattern that I could print as an example, it really helped. They are 4 1/2 " squares, need 5 for each plus.

    Very neat quilt! That would be a super pattern for a gift to a Math teacher.

    Your quilt is wonderful. It is fun just to look at because of the design and the fabrics. You did a wonderful job and I know you are going to enjoy it. I don't think I have seen the design before so it was so nice to see your example. Thanks for sharing.

    Smile

    I can't thank you all enough. Just what I needed when I've been so bummed out. When you google it in images, you'll find quite a lot of different types of plus quilts made with all kinds of different fabrics. I love to google images. Such a variety and loads of fun. I have a tendacy to make quilts according to seasons and holidays, not too sure why. DID I POST ENOUGHT PICS OR WHAT ????

    This one is VERY cute! I love it, so guess it needs to go on my bucket list, since it looks like it will work up quickly! lol
    I've come to the sad conclusion that there are literally thousands of quilt patterns out there and I'll never manage to make one of each if I live to be 100.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    That is FABULOUS! I'd never seen that pattern before but I LOVE it! Did you make it yourself (the pattern, not the quilt... LOL!)? I love the RWB! Just in time for the 4th, eh? Great job!!!

    Lovely quilt! I love the bright colours and the sheer simplicity that gives it such oomph. Great stuff!
