|Quilt| X Plus


This quilt has been far too long in the finishing. Started last year and only quilted last month. The top stalled out for a bit when I came up short of background fabric but then I must admit that the finished top sat around for about six months or so while I tried to find time to baste and quilt it.


I’ve been enjoying this quilt on the bed since I came home from Market. It’s filled with so many bits and pieces of my favorite fabrics that every time I wake up under it I find something new to love about it.


I love the way these blocks look set on point. I considered a quilt including only X-plus blocks with no background but I like how the text fabric lets it all sit a bit easier. There’s so many fabrics included in here that I think without that background fabric some of them would get lost.

Quilted with Free-Motion wavy lines.

Binding is a rainbow stripe print pulled from my stash.

Size: 72″ square

    without you telling me I wouldn’t have recognized the block… putting it on point really changes it! And I love the background :)
