Have you seen this quilt? Seems like there was a little wave of "plus sign" quilt patterns recently across the internet. When the ladies in our guild saw the pattern in this magazine, they decided to schedule it for one of our "Sit & Sew" days...so yesterday, we all started our Plus Sign quilts! I don't even know if that's the name in the magazine! I was just so excited to get started, I jumped right in!

My friend Peggy was also able to come down from New Jersey to sew with me for the day! Here she is hard at work laying out her squares.
Last night after getting home, I went right back to work laying out more rows on my top. It's really quite challenging to make sure all the squares are in the right place. It's pieced in rows, so you really have to keep on top of it...one little mistake and it throws the whole thing off!
It's really fun though! This one is made with 2.5" squares, but I think 1.5" squares would be fun too! Have you tried this pattern?
