Announcing the Plus Quilt Along (+ a sale)!

Tuesday, April 2, 2024

Hooray! We're going to make plus quilts together this Spring! I'll be hosting a plus quilt along starting Tuesday, April 23rd. I hope you'll join in, these quilts are so fun to make! Suitable for beginner and seasoned quilters alike! I've made so many of these quilts over the years, and I'm still not tired of them. I'll share a full schedule for the quilt along soon, but the first week will be all about picking out what size, fabrics, and colors to use for your quilt. These quilts make great stash busters!

The Plus Quilt Along will officially kick off on Tuesday, April 23rd and will run for four weeks!

Each Tuesday of the sew along I'll publish a blog post with tasks for the week along with some helpful tips and tricks! I'll set up a dedicated quilt along page so that you can easily reference posts if you're working at a different pace.

How to Participate:
Similar to our annual Lined Drawstring Bag Sewing Along, this is going to be casual and no-stress. Participating is easy, we'll be using the #arithmeticquilt hashtag on Instagram to share our progress. Please tag me too @jenib320, I love seeing your projects. Not on Instagram? That's okay! Feel free to quilt along and share your quilts with me via email!

Pattern & Tutorial:
Sew from the tutorial or pattern! The free tutorial is for a throw size quilt using 4.5" squares, you can find it here: Modern Plus Quilt Tutorial. The pattern has six quilt size options including baby, throw, twin, double, queen, and king. There are also three square sizes: 2.5", 4.5" or 8". So 18 different options to choose from! Find the pattern here: Arithmetic Quilt Pattern.
Shop the Pattern:
The Arithmetic Quilt Pattern is 20% off today through 4/26/24. Price is already marked down, no code needed.

Happy Quilting!


  1. I can't wait! I am in the process of picking fabric now. I have a pile of charms. Will 5 inch squares work ok with this? I bought them for another pattern but it didn't work out so I would like to use them up.

    1. 5" squares will work! You'll just end up with a slightly larger quilt top (compared to if you were using 4.5" squares), so you'll need a bit more fabric and batting!

  2. I'm looking forward to it! Have fabrics in mind already!

  3. I recently bought fabric for a different quilt, but I’m switching patterns and joining this quilt along! Now I just have to decide size. I’m tempted to do a queen for our guest bed. Thanks for the invitation!
