Modern Plus Sign Quilts ++ the Book!!

I am so excited to finally be able to share one of my largest and longest ongoing secret-sewing projects....I wrote a book with Paige Alexander (of Quilted Blooms) called Modern Plus Sign Quilts!

You all know my love for the plus sign as a design element in a quilt based on how often they show up in my patterns and quilts.  I love how classic and universally appealing the design is.  We had such fun creating 16 different plus sign quilt patterns, each a twist on the classic and traditional plus sign designs.

Modern Plus Sign Quilts and is being published by Stash Publications (part of C&T Publications) and is now available for pre-order on Amazon (affiliate link) so I can finally share the cover of the book with you!


I think that there are designs for everyone, from baby all the way to queen sizes and from very beginner friendly to more challenging.  Most of the quilt patterns are traditionally pieced but there are a couple of foundation paper pieced patterns and applique patterns too.

The book is supposed to be published in early February (right before QuiltCon 2018) and I will share more information as soon as I can.

I am linking up with Finish it up Friday with Crazy Mom Quilts.
