Plus and Minus Quilts - Times 3

Hi Peeps!

Sit down put your feet up or grab a cuppa there's 3 quilts so there are alot of photos!!

It's not often, if ever, that I make a quilt using the same pattern more than once, but I've made this quilt three times, and I absolutely don't think that will be it!

Pattern is Plus and Minus quilt by Emily Dennis from Quilty Love.

I have several of her patterns and they are easy to follow with lots of pictures and easy to follow instructions.

This colour combo was from a Fat Quarter Shop stash pack, this particular pack is no longer available but they have some others that are equally get matching Aurifil thread with the coordinating Bella Solids...YAY!

I used Kona Cotton Snow for the background, and crosshatched all over....but my favourite part is the backing!

This Suzy Ultman print was beyond perfection when it came to matching the front colours I just wish I had enough to have them standing upright instead of laying down LOL

So backing is from the stash aaaand the win...using it up!

This version uses a Cotton and Steel bundle by Alexia Abegg called Flowershop that when paired with a charcoal shot cotton makes a very funky little boys quilt.... I think

I even used another stash fabric for the backing, Filigree by Anna Maria Horner...still trying not to freak out that it's pretty much all used up........

And this is why I love this pattern so much...I've had this Dashwood fabric pile forrreevaaahh....along comes the Plus Minus magic and boom we have another quilt.....just what we need Mwahahaha

I also got to use a couple of other random fabrics and some recent purchases to round out the overall colour scheme for a decent sized lap quilt.

Excuse me while I high five myself for another hoarded fabric used in the backing....feels so good...but also freaks me out when it's actually goooone.
Love Cypress Paisley by Amy Butler

Binding is stash fabric by Jennifer Paganelli Maritza idea how long I've had that??

OK you made it to the end! Well done!.......go get the pattern you'll use it over and over, I promise!

All three are listed in my Etsy Shop......seriously I can't keep them....can I ?

Talk soon Peeps xx

  1. I love them all, but the grey is my favourite.
    It looks like a nice, easy pattern to use up those hoarded fabrics. (Yes, you can buy more fabric when these are used up. Don't cry!)


Thanks for saying Hi........give me a day or so and I will say Hi back and answer any questions you may have....have a great day :)
