Outlined Plus Pattern Launch

I am excited to announce that my pattern, Outlined Plus, is now available! You can find the pattern on Etsy, and on Craftsy.  The pattern will be on sale for $6 for two weeks (until January 1st). 


The Outlined Plus block was originally published in the Volume 11 of the 100 Blocks magazine by Quiltmaker.  The block was very popular and I started to have some people asking for directions to make the block into a full quilt.  


I had started to develop Outlined Plus into a full quilt pattern when I saw Jackie Padesky's version pop up on Instagram.  This quilt is perfection in its beautiful Bonnie and Camille floral fabrics, great color choices, wonderful quilting, and fun striped binding.  I immediately knew that I wanted Jackie's version on the front cover of the quilt pattern and was so excited when she agreed!  You should all hope over to Instagram right now and start following Jackie, her quilts are stunning!!


Outlined Plus is a fun take on a classic plus sign block and is a very versatile pattern containing 5 sizes: baby, lap, twin, queen, and king along with fabric requirements and cutting instructions to make:

  • each section (plus, outline, and background) using different fabrics in each block for a scrappy look
  • each of the block sections from a single fabric.  


You can mix and match the instructions to customize your quilt!  For example, to make Jackie’s cover version, you would use the single fabric instructions for the plus section and the multi-fabric instructions for the outline and background sections.


I want to truly thank my two pattern testers Paige @ Quilted Blooms and Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl.  Because of the complexity of getting so many different options and sizes into the pattern, I think Paige spent as much time helping me edit the pattern as I did writing it!

Quilt Along

Also, Cindy @ Hyacinth Quilt Designs just started a version of Outlined Plus using Fleet and Flourish by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabrics (which is stunning) and is thinking about making it into a Quilt along!  Hope over to her blog or Instagram for more info.

Just as a reminder: The pattern is now available on Etsy and Craftsy for $6 for two weeks (until January 1st).

  5. Now that I've 'made' this on paper, I really want to make this one for real. Cheryl, what a versatile pattern you have designed with so many options, great job! And after seeing Jackie's version, I just might become a Bonnie & Camille fan.

  7. Love the modern pattern with the florals in your new pattern. I look forward to seeing it in other colorways and solids.

  8. Lovely! And your obsession with plus signs continues ; )

    I especially appreciate seeing it in B&C fabrics. I consider the design modern and B&C fabrics more shabby chic or traditional. The pattern + the fabrics here = a fabulous combination.

  19. Besides being wonderful to look at, your patterns are always easy to follow and very versatile Cheryl! I can see why you fell in love with Jackie's scrappy rendition and bet it is going to look beautiful in Cindy's Fleet and Flourish version too. I'm thinking about it in Regent Street Lawns.
    Kudos to Paige and Yvonne - they're the best!
