Low volume Plus quilt sew along

It's Friday, and the Low volume Plus quilt sew along is going to start today!
I'm so excited to sew these gorgeous blocks, and I hope we'll have lots of fun.
As I told you in my earlier post this is a sew along with no rules, just for fun!

I have decided to start with the table runner and use my 2" strips and use up a few scrap pieces for the plus'es, but don't have any pattern to follow, just figured out the measurements myself. These are the pieces you will have to cut:

Plus fabric: 
2- 2" x 2" 
1- 2" x 5"

Background fabric:
2- 2" x 2" 
4- 2" x 3,5"
1- 2" x 8" (You will need a few extra to set on both sides of the plus block on some)

I have asked Stina about permission to use her drawings for the tutorials she has posted on her blog, and this is two of the blocks she has a tutorial for:

The first one is for 1,5" strips:
You can find Stina's turorial here

The next one is for 2,5" strips: 
You can find Stina's tutorial here

Hope you will use the #plusquiltsewalong if you post on Instagram. I will later tonight share the links to the other ladies' blogs so you can follow their progress.

Happy sewing and See you later :-)

Good morning my dear. I really like this block. I will have to try it out when I get a little time to sew. Seems like there is just not enough time in one day.
Hop you have a wonderful day.

Ser spennende ut. Spørs om jeg klarer flere prosjekter akkurat nå.
