Positive Addition

DSC_0018    A friend-of-the-family is having a baby!  The couple are both very mathematically inclined, modern, and cool.  They are expecting a baby girl, but aren’t interested in over-the-top-girly-goo-goo-gaa-gaa things.


After seeing Debbie’s quilt and this one from Film in the Fridge, I decided to make this plus block blanket.  Assorted greys, whites, and a bit of pink work for the background, and the pluses are primarily orange, teal, blue, or pink.  I really love how this turned out!




And for the back?  My mother-in-law asked if I’d be able to find Pi symbol fabric for these engineers.  Of course!  I framed a yard of the Pi fabric with green and a splash of orange.  The binding is a teensy bit scrappy, with grey and pink and orange.



Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi! LOVE LOVE LOVE! This is just the kind of plus block I am looking for!! Do you have the fabric dimensions so I can make the same block? I’d looove to have them, I can only find instructions for bigger blocks with lots more cutting… Thanks!!!

    • Hello Alexandra! I am pretty sure I did 4 – 3″ squares of background fabric, 2 – 3″ squares for the plus and and 1 – 3″ x 8″ strip for the cross bar in the plus. I added strips of the same background fabric above and below the cross – Looks like maybe I cut 2.5″ strips? Best of luck and happy sewing!
