I just joined a block swap based on the Japanese x and + block pattern. The flickr block swap begins in January 2012 and I wanted to try out the pattern. I love it! Making these blocks is becoming addictive, maybe because I find the process of making it really relaxing. When I first started making the blocks, I just happen to be watching Law and Order. And every time I worked on the blocks, the show just happen to be on. Now, when Law and Order is on, I feel the need to make these blocks. I've become the Pavlov dog of quilting! LOL
Here are the first four blocks:
And the four blocks together:
I've been using fabrics from my stash and the fabric selection has been pretty painless since I spent the entire Thanksgiving weekend sorting and organizing my fabrics. I'm loving how the blocks look together so I'll probably make a quilt as well as blocks to swap.
Have a quilty weekend!
