If you are like me you tend to end up with extra layer cake, charm square and jelly roll pieces. What’s a girl to do with all those? I throw mine in a box. I have a box for layer cake and charm squares and one for jellyroll pieces. When they get full I make a quilt of course. These x and + blocks help me make room in my boxes for more happy pieces.
My Three Red Hot Kisses quilt is an example of this fun, scrap busting block. I didn’t pay as much attention to value in this one. Because of that some of my x’s and +’s get lost. This next go around I’m being a little more intentional. Using medium to dark fabrics for my x’s and +’s and light low volume prints for the background.
Learn how to make your own, with my newest YouTube video. New link, I don’t know what I did that made the formatting of my original video small. Gotta love technology. I’m sure it was user error but still. I did some yoga and then got busy fixing it. Here is the result. Hope you like it.
