Description

A teacher at work asked me to make a tote for her.  She chose the colors and asked for this block but wanted it altered just a bit.  I will be giving it to her this week.  I hope she likes it!

What a great use for those fun X+ blocks.

Really nice- love the blocks and the fabrics are super!

Did you use a certain pattern for the tote and/or tutorial for the blocks? I'd love to make this for my mom with a new charm pack I purchased, but I don't know where to start!

It appears you took the "plus" part of the block and added a second color to that part to make a cross instead. Am I correct?

Juliecc I made my own pattern for this tote. I am actually working on writing the pattern right now (It won't use the x&+ block though).

I did use the x&+ tutorial from Amy (Badskirt). You can find the tutorial for the block here:

And you are correct, I did change the bottom of the + to make a cross. Let me know if you have any questions. I will help if I can!
