Mini Plus Quilt Pattern
I have a Plus Quilt Pattern Worksheet – FOR A MINI QUILT – just for you! It seems the Plus Quilt Baby Size quilt pattern is a popular free download. It occurred to me I could go smaller and use a portion of a 5″ square charm pack to create a cute mini quilt.
Since this is a mini quilt, finishing approx 15″ x 18″, it is less critical to use the worksheet to plan your design. You probably have table space or a TV tray big enough to lay out the plus design, using the worksheet as a guide.
Like the larger Plus Baby Quilt, the design is stitched in 7 rows, then the rows are joined. Stitch using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Grab a Seamingly Accurate Seam Guide to make sure your 1/4″ seam is always accurate.
The pattern includes two borders. Those are optional, of course. I went with black and a pale blue for this first Plus Mini Quilt. Unfortunately, the blue is super washed out in the picture below.
The Plus Mini Quilt is small enough that one single fat quarter (18″ x 22″) is used as the backing for the quilt.
This is a fun fast pattern for those mini quilt swaps you’ve been wanting to join. =)
If you are curious about the lovely charm pack (precut 5″ squares) I used, I’ll tell ya – it is Hello Gorgeous by Melissa Ybarra for Iza Pearl Designs for Windham Fabrics.
