It All Adds Up Quilt Along

I'm joining the AP&Q It All Adds Up Quilt Along.  This year the theme is plus quilts.  

I started a plus quilt last year but got sidetracked and put it in a project box.

There are 4 different projects available and I was thinking perhaps I could convert my plus start from last year into this project, Plus Postage, designed by Susan Ache.

I've made two blocks.  I enjoyed making them but am not sure it's the best use of my fabric, I think I can do better.

So I'm going to mull this around and either try Susan's pattern again with different fabric or maybe try a different pattern and different fabric.  Stay tuned!

It's all fun.

You should quilt along too.  I'm getting a late start, but my magazine didn't show up until last Friday.  Check out Instagram for some great inspiration and amazing finishes.


  1. First I love the quilt with the red pluses it's so beautiful! And your blocks look great, too, but I can understand your problems about them because I think this collections is quite calm and needs a bit colors (at least to me). Perhaps if you use low volume prints instead of the solid white?

  2. I still love your original plus quilt try. Orange is my favorite color and I love how you used it with brown and pops of yellow. Still, I always look forward to following your creative process!

  3. A plus quilt has been on my list for a long time. I'm very tempted...

  4. The colors in your original quilt are wonderful.

  5. I've made 2 plus quilts recently and just finished a Bonnie & Camille swap of plus blocks....I'm making those 24 blocks into 2 baby quilts for Ronald McDonald house.
    Anyhoo....I was going to post on IG to see what fabrics everyone was using.....
    I like the one in the magazine with the red crosses (naturally LOL) but I think I want something with more random colors for the plusses.
    I can't start this project till after I finish my Tone It Down quilt, which is so far only 8 blocks and the other 12 will take some time....

    I'll keep following your progress here and IG to see what you decide on.

  6. Your Red quilts are always stunning--it's your color. I'll look forward to seeing what you come up with, XOXO
