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!

I love how cheerful this quilt is! Nice work.
Oh, I love this! Great job!
Wow, I’m googling “plus” quilts as I’d love to make one – this is GORGEOUS!
Thanks so much, Jacqueline ! It was a bunch of fun to make and a nice use for scraps!
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!
