little quilt monday~~~X and + mini quilt

Little Quilt Monday

I am working on my X and + mini quilt for a OKCMQG challenge using Madrona Road fabric.
The tutorial for this block can be found here at Badskirt.

I have wanted to make this block since the first time I saw it, but it has been on my
list of many things that I want to make : )  As it turned out, it was the block of the month
for our guild in March.  So this seemed like a great way to try out the quilt block and work
on my mini quilt challenge!

X and Plus quilt block

It is a great scrappy block and I now know that I will make it again.  That is one of the fun things
about mini can try something first to see if you like it.

I have added linen borders and I put the quilt block off-center.

As you can see, I am quilting with big stitches using embroidery thread.
I do enjoy those big stitches!
