Plus And Minus Blocks Equal A Quilt

While I was visiting a quilt store sale with my friend, Susan, we were ready to buy a 40 per cent off item...which included kits. We had a hard time deciding which much needed (NOT) kit that we were going to buy. It's not like I don't have enough to sew!

We decided this was the one we wanted because we liked the colors in the fabrics. The Plus & Minus Glyphs quilt uses the Plus and Minus pattern by Emily Dennis. Fabrics are from the Glyphs Collection by e bond for Free Spirit Fabrics. Quilt finishes at 58" x 72".

Susan is more the pieced quilt person, so this was right up her alley. Me, not so much.
I managed to get the pieces cut out and then life got in the way.
This is what I was facing when life gave me a chance to start again. Ugh!
It was so confusing for me to put together.

Charlie was ready to supervise the quilting when the top was finally together.

I love when the quilt is loaded and ready to quilt.
My machine doesn't have any bells or whistles, but it gets the job done.

I used a panto for this one. 
It's called "Modernish" by Urban Elementz.

It's not perfect, but I'm still learning.

All done! 

Since I rarely stick to the pattern's instructions, it's a miracle this worked.
It's big and will be perfect for a guy or girl gift.

It's also a miracle that I finished this and it didn't end up in the PIGS pile with the 
rest of the quilts I've been working on for the next blog hop.


  1. This is such a pretty quilt. I love the design, colors and fabrics in it. So happy you finished it.

  2. Love the Emily Dennis pattern, and I love the fabrics! Very pretty quilt, and your quilting looks amazing. Haha, yes you might have used this as your "PIG" - lol!

  3. That turned out beautifully! I've been adding at least one PIG to my UFO list for each month, and gradually I've been finishing up a few of those projects I just couldn't resist over the years.

  4. Love the pattern and the fabric. It is a gorgeous quilt and fun that it didn't languish in the pile too long. It is funny how sometimes we can get back to it and other times we push it away. Love modernish as a panto for this quilt, too.
