Description

I joined a swap swapping the x and + blocks using the tutorial by badskirt. It was a new block for me at the time. Over the last 18 months I've swapped blocks and made enough more myself to complete this quilt. Back block design is my adaptation. The black and white stripe binding was something I'd been wanting to try and I finally just jumped in and did it!

The stripe binding sets this busy quilt off nicely. The back is cool too. But the front just blows me away...all those pieces. Nice work! Love all the different prints!

Janquilter

The scrappy look gives thie quilt such movement! I love the stripe binding.

Aquilterstable

Charwirfs whew! blows me away too! ;-) Thanks!!

Aquilterstable

Janquilter Thank you! Kind of a random choice for me for the binding but I like it!

Caribousmom

What a gorgeous scrappy quilt. Love that black and white binding too. So great!

Dtscrapper

This is so lovely! I'm dying to make this pattern!

Aquilterstable

Caribousmom Thank you!!

Dtscrapper Such a fun little block! Never knew I liked scrappy SO much! ;-)

Wow!! That is amazing! Are there many fabrics that are repeated? And do you have an estimate on how many pieces are in it? I love the back and the quilting! Super-Neat!!

Aquilterstable

Sewzalot hmmm. Hadn't thought of how many different fabrics! But I'd say there are very few repeats. About 1/3 of the blocks were swapped...I made the rest and didn't repeat too many. Considering there are 7 different fabrics in each block, I'm confident there are well over 500 different fabrics. Wow indeed!

I'm kind of sad that you posted this, but only because, I LOVE this block! I wanted to use it for my month as queen in the hive, but I was trying to find a block nobody had posted yet.....but you beat me to it. On a happy note you did an amazing job and this looks really incredible! I had the same website saved that you used, however I have been trying to find a modified version to make the blocks 12". This is on my list of quilts to make. You really did do a great job, the colors are stunning and the back is awesome! Great job!!!!

Aquilterstable

Skynme oh I'm sorry! What bee are we in together? Here's a link to dimensions for the 12" blocks: https://www.flickr.com/photos/justabitfrayed/8378822900/in/pool-xandplusalong/
Thanks though - you'll have great fun making your own x and + quilt!!

Skynme

LOL it's fine it's such a great block that I knew someone would post it. We aren't in a bee together I was just searching for a block that nobody had posted yet. Thanks for the link. You really did do an amazing job on this quilt and I can't wait to make my own. Thanks again!!!

Aquilterstable

Skynme ok, I misunderstood. Good luck finding your block! Thanks.
