DWM: More Plus Dash Blocks

Today my design wall is full of Plus Dash blocks. I've decided on these 20 blocks out of 23 that I made. When deciding on a block layout, I usually take photos of several options, then rotate the photos as I'm considering them, to see if the layout looks balanced from all directions. This is the layout I've decided on.
Plus Dash Blocks Laid Out

Next up, sashing.
While I'd like to get the sashing done this week, what I'd really like is for the themed charm pack and layer cake I ordered to get here so I can start working on that project, which has a deadline. It's also secret sewing, so I won't be able to show it on the blog for awhile.

Check out what everyone else has on their design wall over at Patchwork Times for more quilty inspiration.


  1. Your blocks are looking great! Such a fun block. What color will you use for your sashing?

  2. I like your layout! Sometimes I feel like getting the correct block placement is like a giant Sudoku puzzle. :)

  3. I really like how your blocks turned out. Very pretty.

  4. Jan, the Plus Dash blocks are great! The constant colors in the pluses give a focus and the variety in the churn dashes adds intrigue.
