    Default plus quilt

    Has anyone done this quilt? What I'm concerned with is keeping the rows straight and in order. Any help from anyone?

    If you have a design wall, it would help. If you do not, make a sketch of all the positions then you can do it row by row. With some planning ahead I don't see any real problems.

    the plus sign? I did a baby sized one, it wasn't too bad, just collected them from the left to the right. Just had to keep count so I didn't go into the next row. design wall is great but I haven't put one up. Go for it!!!

    I've made some sort of plus quilt, having a designwall makes all the difference, or using row markers are helpful as well

    I just finished piecing mine together. I used a design wall and then used those neon garage sale stickers and labeled each row. I had fifteen rows so I had stickers from 1 to 15. I then took them off and stacked them on top of each other. When I got to the next orange sticker, I sewed a new row.

    I use the yard-sale stickers too. I put the row # on the sticker along with an arrow pointing in the direction I need to press the seams so they will nest when I sew the rows together. The sticker goes on the first piece on the left and I stack them from left to right.

    Design Wall is the way to go.
    Once you stitch two squares/rows together, put it back on the design wall. Stitch the next two and repeat.

    I laid mine out on my cutting tables (2 of them pushed together). It was a bit tricky to lay out, sort of like putting a puzzle together. I use row markers made from floss bobbins with the row numbers written on them. I attach the row marker to the square on the left, fold that one over the next one and pin where the seam will go. Then I stack the rest of the blocks from left to right and sew them in to the row. Then as I build the rows, I sew them to the one I previously finished. I do this when sewing every quilt that I make.

    Here's my plus quilt, just finished quilting it this week.
