Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 13 Blog Tour + Giveaway - It All Adds Up

Welcome!  I have been anticipating my stop on Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour and glad you here! If you are new to my blog, I'm Paige and you can read a little bit about me here.


I am so honored that my block and first published pattern, It All Adds Up, is included in this issue of 100 Blocks and I am participating in my first blog hop!

It All Adds Up block by Paige Alexander
I wanted fabrics with high contrast and chose Scribble Dot in Red from the Breezy Blooms collection by Susan Rooney for Benartex and Petite Plus, from the Black and White collection by Cotton and Steel, a division of RJR Fabrics.  The background is Kona Cotton in white by Robert Kaufman.

Petite Plus from Black and White by Cotton + Steel and Scribble Dot from Breezy Blooms

I forgot to take a picture after I added my signature to the block so here it is in the magazine, block #1253 on page 36.  You can tell I'm just a little excited, right?

It All Adds Up in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 13
I originally drew the plus sign block on graph paper and then digitized the design in EQ7.  Here is the 4 by 4 layout from EQ7 rendered in the same fabrics as the original block with the every other block rotated 90 degrees.

It All Adds Up with blocks rotated 90 degrees
And since you can quickly and easily swap out colors and fabrics in EQ7, here are a few variations in the same 4 by 4 block layout.

1. Each plus sign is a different color within the block and rendered in fabrics from the Flow collection by Zen Chick for Moda Fabrics.

2. This time all the plus signs are the same color, Tic in Pickle and the background is Blueberry Carpal Stone, both from Carolyn Friedlander's 4th fabric collection, Carkai, for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.

It All Adds Up rendered in Carkai Tic in Pickle and Blueberry Carpal Stone

3. More Carkai was used in this one and has more of a masculine feel.  The plus signs are Metallic Windowpanes in Navy and the background is Tic in Parchment.

It All Adds Up rendered in Carkai Metallic Windowpanes in navy and Tic in parchment

4. This one is rendered in batik blenders which coordinate with the Crystalia collection, the 2016 Hoffman Challenge fabric.

It All Adds Up in Hoffman batiks

5.  And one of my favorites is this one rendered using different fabrics from Handcrafted Indigo by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics and a white background.

It All Adds Up rendered in Handcrafted Indigo

You can see the different looks achieved by using just one fabric, two fabrics or four different fabrics for the plus signs.  You could even make a scrap quilt and make each plus sign from a different fabric.  One plus sign can be easily cut from one charm square.

Quilts 1 through 5 were all designed from fabrics in the EQ Stash Online 2016 Download 01.

  26. Good morning... I've never made a Plus Sign quilt, ever. But after seeing how the colors can change the personality and feel of the quilt I've very tempted to try one this summer.

    Congratulations on entering the contest... wonderful that you got picked for the magazine and great that you're on the blog

    Thank you.

    How would you quilt this quilt? I am just learning FMQ and finding it hard to decide what pattern to use to quilt my quilts. Thanks for giveaway.

    1. Donna, deciding on a quilting pattern is the hardest for me as well! This would look great in an all over pattern such as a regular stipple or a geometric stipple. Or possible random straight lines quilted horizontally or vertically or a combination of the two.

  74. There's a class of plus sign quilts? Who knew? Although I like the block and your use of different fabrics--and how it looks in a whole quilt--I would not, personally, make it at this time (must finish wips...). If I did, I would investigate putting something in the "centers". Or use black as the background with dayglow plus's (at least I'm thinking about it!).

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thank you for a chance to win. I have not made a plus quilt and I am focused on working through my UFO stack to plan a new quilt at this time.

  157. I have never made a plus quilt even though I have seen several plus quilts recently. Your take on the block has really caught my eye and I think it would be great to use bright colors for a baby quilt.

  175. Congratulations Paige! Being published in Quiltmaker's 100 blocks is quite an honor! I really love that your "It All Adds Up" created a very different plus sign quilt layout - it almost has a woven effect. It would be really fun to make with a low volume, scrappy background! My favorite of your EQ7 examples was the Alison Glass Indigo fabrics.

  178. I haven't made a plus sign quilt yet, but I think that it would be a great stash buster - you could do each plus sign in a different fabric. Or in rainbow colors. What fun. Thanks for the opportunity and a great block.
