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!
The scrappy look gives thie quilt such movement! I love the stripe binding.
What a gorgeous scrappy quilt. Love that black and white binding too. So great!
This is so lovely! I'm dying to make this pattern!
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!!
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!!!!
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!!
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!!!
It's beautiful. I love the scrappiness!
Gorgeous quilt! I want to make this one sometime, too. Your backing is brilliant!!! I really it!!!
