TUTORIAL | The Plus-Sign Block

I present to you another one of my Quilt Block Tutorial videos!

When I’m browsing on Pinterest (which is practically all the time!), I always seem to come across beautiful quilts made with this block.

Links to these quilts are at the end of this post!

And they’re always so pretty and effective!

I ummed-and-aahhed between calling this block the Plus-Sign or (Modern) Crosses block as it can be referred to as both these names.

In the end, I settled on the Plus-Sign block as this particular design looks more like a plus-sign (+) than a cross (x).

Lately, I’ve been receiving some wonderful and very encouraging feedback about my tutorials (which I love!) and in the way that I present them.

People are torn between the narrative style I’ve done in the past and the annotated versions I’ve been doing of late.

Let me know what you think!

I would love to know where and what I can improve on to help you understand and enjoy my video tutorials!

The next video tutorial in the works is a Foundation Paper-Piecing idea that I said I would do in my Craft Haul video!

I’m super-super excited to get that underway!

So I here I leave you for the day…

I wish you all a splendid weekend!!

Happy Sewing Friends! xx

  1. This was great! So hard to find a plus quilt pattern. I wonder if you have calculated how many blocks it would take to make a twin sized quilt.


  2. I love your tutorials. When they are simpler blocks I appreciate the relaxing music with notes at the bottom as you go – start to finish incl. the pressing. But, I really needed to hear you explain the foundation paper piecing tutorial. I watched the entire 16 minutes – they went by quickly. I feel like I get it now and I don’t feel so intimidated to try it. Also, I like that you have a lot of variety in your blocks – like traditional flying gees to a twist on traditional wonky log cabin (haven’t watched that – but it lead me to watch the tutorial on the paper piecing! But you also have lots of other very appealing block ideas. Love it! Thought you might just like some specific feedback.

    Overall – A BIG thank you for making a beginner quilter feel like she can spread her wings a bit.

  3. Your video makes it look so easy! Thanks for doing that. What size block do you end up with? Maybe I missed that. I appreciate you putting these on YouTube. They are helpful for sure!
