these three x & + blocks are making me insanely happy. i have jessica to blame for this. i just loved the quilt top she finished during our sewing retreat so much, i couldn't help but dive into making these blocks myself (using this tutorial). mine are way scrappy, meaning i just pulled whatever i had on hand from my scrap bins, not caring at all if the fabrics looked good together or matched. i maybe should have paid more attention to value, but nothing bothers me enough to change it. and rather than make this all by myself, i think i will make this the next project for the love circle of do. good stitches. so watch out, stitchers! this is what's coming your way next month!
i also just finished up these two blocks for the july do. good stitches quilt. and i am seriously in love with them. deborah asked for blocks in reds, blues, and yellows with pops of grey, using this tutorial. the colors are great, and it's going to look so amazing when it's all put together. [swoon!]
and i finally managed to finish this block i started on the retreat. i am super happy with where this is going, though parts of it aren't exactly right. i plan on playing around with the design to see what will come of it. but for now it's going to become a pillow!
