Jenny Doan shows us how to make a super easy lovely Plus Sign Quilt using charm packs (5 inch squares of precut fabric).

Hi I’m Jenny from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.  Take a look at this beautiful quilt behind me.  This is one of those plus quilts and plus quilts are all the rage right now.  See how these go together to make these plus signs? They are so popular and everyone loves them.  And I want to show you a super easy way to do this using just charm squares.  So the charm square we are using today are called “Indian Summer,” and they’re by Dover Hill for Benartex and they’re just beautiful.  I just love those shades of blues and greens, they’re just gorgeous.  This quilt is about 58 by 68 and we have used four charm packs in the making of this quilt.  But what you really need to pay attention to is that each plus takes five squares.  So you need to be sure and check your charm packs to see if you have extras or you know if they have put doubles in there or triples or if they’re just singles, because you need  five squares of each color to make this plus quilt.  

So this whole quilt is all about the layout.  It’s as easy as a charm pack quilt.  So what we’re going to do, I’m going to show you how to lay this out.  We’re going to open up these, this charm pack. This is an Indian, this “Indian Summer” charm pack.  And you will notice right off the bat that I have several of each color in here and that makes this a real easy quilt.  And so I’m going to open up this second one.  And I’m just going to, what I’ll kind of do is just stack them together so I know exactly what I have.  

So what I’ve done here is I’ve taken two of the charm packs and I’ve open them up and the fun thing about this “Indian Summer” is there are several pieces of the same fabric in these charm packs so you can build your little stacks easier.  I’ve stacked them all out here, lined them up in order of color, because this helps me when I am putting them together.  

So for those of you who love games like tetris, you are going to love this quilt cause it is going to make so much sense in your mind and it’s going to go together like clockwork.  For those of you who are a little angley challenged like this girl here.  You’re going to need to really watch the layout and really make sure you have, you know all your things lined out. What I do to help me is I make the pluses and then I fit them together how they go.  So let’s start here with this one.  And I going to make my plus by putting one above a row of three like this and one below.  That makes my plus right there.  So then I’m going to make another plus right here and I’m going to put that up here.  I going to make three in a row and I’m going to slide that up here, right into this spot right here.  And then I’ll put one above and one below.  Now if this row ends up being my top row I will end up discarding that one.  But for just for now for the sake of being able to see it and how the layout works and how it goes together.  I’m just going to leave that one there.

So then over here, you know I’ve got one here, one here, now I’m going to lay one out right here.  And I’m going to put this here and I’m going to have a couple here like this, but if this is the edge of my quilt I have to stop right there and I’m just going to make a half a plus.  So then my next plus right here, let me scoot these out of the way a little bit.  My next plus right here is going to squeeze up into here and I’ll have three of these and three across, and one at the top and one at the bottom and it makes your plus.  So as you go along you’ll want to have a nice big floor to lay this out and you’ll want to be able to see how all your pluses go together.  You’ll want to watch this very carefully make sure that you have, you know that they’re in the in the right places.  And then what we’re going to do is we’re going to sew this together row by row like this.

So what I do then if this is the top of my quilt is I’m just going to sew this row together.  And it’s just like sewing a charm pack quilt.  You’re going to take your two blocks, you’re going to put them right sides together, you’re going to sew a ¼ of an inch, you’re going to press to the dark side.  And then you’re going to just lay them out and sew a whole row.  Then you’ll attach the next row and so on and so on and it’s just going to be so fun and you’ll have a plus quilt just like this.  Now I want to show you one more cool thing about this quilt.  We had some leftover squares some leftover charms.  So what we did was we took a piece of the border.  But up here in this top corner you can see that we put in some squares and we did that on this top corner and we did it on the bottom corner down here too.  Just to offset it and give it a little more pizazz.  Also you guys know I don’t like waste.  So that enables us to just go ahead and you know use up those extra squares on the outside of the border.  

So I hope that you guys have fun making this, because this is a really fun idea.  The plus quilt is so popular and they’re just fun to put together and just be careful with that layout.  Watch what you’re doing.  So we hope you enjoyed this tutorial on how to make the plus quilt from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Simple Plus Quilt (with tutorial)


I’m slowly but surely working on catching up with all the completed quilts around here.   This blog pretty much serves as a place to document completed quilty projects.

Today is a simple plus quilt.  I started this one back in July at a weekend retreat with friends and finished it off a few weeks back.   The grey is an Essex linen.   I believe the color is “grey” but it doesn’t look anything like the screen shot.  In person it is much more of a blue grey than a true grey.   Does that make sense?…lol.

This was an easy one to do at a retreat where thinking is minimal 😉   Holly of Bijou Lovely had the measurements figured out for me in about 5 minutes.   I tend to wing it with quilts and rarely figure things out before hand.   Which leads to much over or under cutting.

Here’s what you will need for this quilt:

Measures:   63″ x 84″

1 yard grey
3 3/4 
yard white
Binding:  5/8 yard or (8) 2.5 in strips
Backing:  5 yards

(90) 4 in grey squares (9 strips 4in x WOF)
(72) 4in white squares (7 strips 4in x WOF)
(17) 11in white squares (6 strips 11in x WOF)
Border:  7 strips 5.5in x WOF


Make 18 blocks.   Alternate with a solid white block when putting quilt top together.

Add a 5.5in white border.

Because the front was so simple I paired it with a vibrant floral backing.   This fabric is a Riley Blake print.quiltylove_EmilyDennis-9774

I went with 1 inch straight line quilting to keep the modern feel.


I think my favorite part is the aqua binding 🙂quiltylove_EmilyDennis-5553quiltylove_EmilyDennis-5557quiltylove_EmilyDennis-5561



White fabric:   Kona White by Robert Kaufman
Grey Plus signs:   Essex Linen in Steel by Robert Kaufman
Aqua Binding:   Kona Aqua
Backing:   Riley Blake Halle Rose
Batting:   Warm and White

I've been meaning to share these photos of this "plus" baby quilt I made for an old friend months ago. This couple has very clean, modern taste, so I was afraid to pick fabrics with any sort of pattern, fearing it would be too baby or too busy for them. Instead I went with all solids, mostly Kona cottons (all fabrics are from JoAnn Fabrics). The plus quilt is a perfect way to show off solids. And it makes a great baby boy quilt (my big boys even requested I make them one--they said it looks like Tetris!).

I'd love to say I figured this out on my own, but I really didn't have time to do that if I wanted the quilt to be done before the kid was 10. I found an awesome tutorial and pattern from For the Love of George. What I love about her version of the plus quilt is that the middle of the plus is a long rectangle rather than three squares that you have to cut and then sew back together. More cutting? More piecing? No thank you!

 If you use a straight line quilting on either side of the seams, no one will ever notice that the middle of the plus isn't pieced. And it saves loads of time.

I quilted with gray thread to match the plain gray backing and binding. It didn't stand out too much on the colors--it's a nice neutral. I chose two shades of orange and three shades of blue, plus green, brown, white, and gray. Look for colors that will make the other colors pop when using all solids, like my white and turquoise do.

The plus quilt tutorialshows you how to make a "cot" or queen size quilt (the cot size was perfect for a crib size quilt). Once I figured out the pattern needed to make the plus signs, I didn't need to use her diagram to lay the whole thing out. But it was so nice to have to get started. And how awesome is it that she offers the patternfor free? Be sure to go give For the Love of Georgesome love from me!

Now to make a quilt for this little guy. He's almost 18 months and still doesn't have a real quilt from his mama. Seriously tragic. But I finally painted his room last week, so now I have no excuses to get going on his bedding. If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw a sneak peak of the color (Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore). I'm so happy with the way it turned out! Watch for my nursery before and after pics soon. . .

That got stuck so got stuck. But they didn't give me a good idea of how to get out of this situation. Probably, my bare ass was at the traffic lights a kilometer away, as from the darkness bursts of laughter and voices came from the darkness: - Oh, look, what.

While working on catwalks abroad, Katya met female fashion models from Africa. This one reminded her of the exotic, savage beauty from the old Italian comedy Signor Robinson, but it looked even more adorable. A thin, slightly curved nose with amazingly outlined nostrils, a large sensual mouth with not very thick, but plump, slightly twisted lips, slightly parted, exposing a row of even.

Impeccably white and, as it seemed to Katie, sharper than those of the European, teeth.
