Adding Up Nicely

Another finished quilt for this month!  This pattern is called Adding Up Nicely and while I didn't get the pattern from the original designer, I got my inspiration from here.  Her's was a baby size and it looks like her blocks were smaller than mine.

My blocks finish at 6 inches.  Seemed like a good number for making the blue and cream blocks. Can you find the blocks in this quilt?  Well, if you're looking below - that's cheating!

These 2 blocks added with the orange and green squares make up this fast to sew quilt.  Let me say up front that I love this quilt!  But I didn't like that blue and orange flower print you see up there.  I told you I was going to try to use my unloved fabric in a more modern quilt and I think I have done just that!  So I am 3 for 3 on turning something not so pretty into something beautiful!

And I used the rest of the cream fabric on the back of the quilt, so it is no more!

Linking up with Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation


  1. Great way to use up unloved fabric, the small print isn't at all noticeable when you look at the whole quilt.

  2. I like your quilt a lot! Thanks so much for posting the blocks themselves. I'd never have seen them. This is a great pattern to feature large prints in the squares.

  3. What a great finish. I think my favorite part is the light dots along the binding.

  4. It really does add up nicely!!! The orange adds a pop of color. And you know in this weather (grey, snowy,dreary, stormy, slushy...) we can all use a pop to brighten our spirits.
    May I copy your quilt idea???

  5. It's great that you challenged yourself to use those unloved fabrics. The quilt is lovely!
