After seeing so many Japanese + and x blocks, I finally had to just make some. Instead of using a tutorial, like a sane person, I had to make up my own pattern. Lately, I have been a little nuts that way! Well, I grabbed some scraps and some stash and began to play.
I was all set to try some FMQ, but then the quilt said "no". I ended up with a lot of very close straight line quilting. It all radiates out from the center.
Was a lot of quilting! It might have been easier to FMQ! For the last border, I just went around several times.
I fell in love with this fabric from Joann's. It was a higher quality than much of their stuff, and I am still loving it. Wish I would have bought more.
The binding was a Jennifer Paganelli print that was left over from making a wall hanging. Still have some left!
I think that the matching binding kinda brings them together!
I will be linking this up to WIP Wednesday, and Sew and Tell Friday. Be sure to check out all the other lovely projects for these linky parties by using the buttons on my side bar.
