I have always wanted to make a plus quilt (my mom thought that meant a really large quilt, so I will clarify that I mean the plus sign you see in the design!) but never really wanted to figure out the math. I love how this pattern uses negative space to make a really interesting design! Add to that the fact that you use 10 fat quarters with minimal waste and a yard and half of background fabric and can get everything cut and organized in an afternoon nap and I am sold!
You can see lots of lovely examples of this quilt during the blog hop:
