X and O quilt








The coloring for this quilt was inspired by the large floral print in the second photo.  There are quite a few prints in this quilt from the collection Freshcut by Heather Bailey. (including that floral)  Of course I added quite a few more.

I made my own version of an x and o quilt. I had this idea for an X shape inside a square.  I fiddled with it till I had the block just perfect to be made with a charm square and half a jelly roll strip.  Then I decided to make a few O's, which also worked out with a charm square and a jelly roll strip.

So I thought maybe I should make a simple pattern out of it, but realized after looking around a bit that there are plenty of x and o quilt patterns out there already!  Yah, that seems to be how it goes for me with pattern writing!

Anyways, I like this little quilt,  although it's not colors I'd choose for myself.  Funny how I like sewing lots of different color combos together, but really there's only a few that I would choose to go with my home decor.  Hopefully this little guy will be perfect for somebody's color scheme!

  19. I love this pattern. I haven't seem an x's and o' pattern as nice as this one (I like the x's being inside the square, instead of going to the very edge). If you aren't making a pattern, do you know of one that's similar to yours?

  20. you have no idea how useful is this quilt for me. I just find the back fabric and decided not to use it for curtains, so I had no clue what to do with it because of its extended flower scale. Too large for small projects and for quilt pieces. And I also love the colors of the print, so it's a perfect choice to make - the back of a little quilt :). And the pattern you made is so pretty!

  23. I ADORE your little X and O quilt and would be thrilled to make one using your design block. Won't you please give us a tutorial?

  24. The O's in this quilt are perfect! You most certainly have something here!

  25. I haven't found any X and O quilt pattern nearly as pretty as this. I would love to make one if you wrote up the pattern, but just a block tutorial would be super. I can imagine adding a few X's and O's in with lots of other design schemes - everyone loves Hugs and Kisses! (and it's a perfect name for the pattern. :)
