pluses and minuses


Gosh, packing up all this fabric is taking longer than I expected, but I'm putting the packages in the mail on Friday. Somewhere commented on someone's awesome plus sign quilt on flickr (maybe yours, Rossie?) is a question about what comes next after pluses. I think someone answered minuses, and, well, I've never been able to get that image out of my head. But, of course, I kinda want both: pluses and minuses.

Here's the plan: the background fabric will be the same throughout - yummy dark teal (which, I think, should disguise dog hair nicely!) - so the idea is the pluses and minuses kind of float in 16 x 16-inch squares. For some reason, I'm having trouble uploading my drawing (albeit crude!) to give you an idea of what I'm thinking, but I was able to get it up on flickr here. And more details to come with the fabric. And just so we're clear, wonky is so, so good!

Can't wait to see your block. Cheers to you and a sunny spring!
