Modern Plus Sampler Quilt ++ My Paper Pieced Areas

January's instructions for the Modern Plus Sampler were the Paper Pieced Areas, based on the Kaleidoscope Plus and Faceted Rings quilts, two of my favorites from the Modern Plus Sign Quilts book. 

I do love sewing paper pieced blocks and creating designs with such interesting angles compared to what is possible with traditional piecing.

There have been some wonderful blocks posted on the Facebook Group and on Instagram (#ModernPlusSamplerQuilt).  If you have a chance, please check them out :)

You can find the Paper Pieced Area instructions for January here and find out all about the quilt along here.

Also, I also wanted to highlight a project that Carole from My Carolina Home has been organizing, the Carolina Hurricane Quilt Project. The project is to collect new and nearly new bed size quilts for the victims of Hurricane Florence and Michael on the North Carolina coast.

The project will go through the summer and completed quilts are needed as well as help making quilt tops and quilting the quilts. More information and updates can be found on Carole’s Blog and the Carolina Hurricane Quilt Project post.


  1. The Faceted rings are my favorite. I may make five of them and fill the center of my large plus.

  2. I'm working on my versions of the blocks right now. I really love the blues in your version!

  3. Your blocks look great. I can't wait to get mine done.

  4. Your blocks are perfect! I have my papers all cut and now need to give it a try!

  5. Your blocks look great. I just love the angles in that top block and those teals and aquas are just to die for!

  6. I just can't stop looking at the Faceted rings block, it is really beautiful! Paper piecing really expands your potential.
