Scrappy blocks and a fabric observation

x & + blocks for do.Good Stitches

I was so glad Ara Jane picked the popular x & + blocks for this month in do.Good Stitches. Following a tutorial by badskirt amy, I feverishly went through my ginormous scrap bin, and had a great time pulling some favorite fabrics.

I've been wanting to try the block for ages, and a quilt full of these scrappy blocks is definitely high on my priority list.

I also received a few cuts of Anna Maria Horner's new Field Study last night from Stash Fabric, and noticed how well it works with some patchwork I started in Innocent Crush.

AMH: old and new

I think I may have to use the bits of Innocent Crush I've got left with the new cuts in a quilty project. Although, that reminds me of some WIP guilt I've got for my old Single Girl...

  8. Your blocks look great!! So fun and scrappy. And I just succumbed to the call of Field Study too b/c I want to pair it with my Innocent Crush for a massive quilt for our bedroom...I think it is going to match wonderfully together. Well, except for the leopard prints...I might leave those out - ha ha!
