X plus along

I had to try the latest craze on Instagram and now flickr the x and + along! I wanted to make a 12 inch block so I did a little digging on Flickr and found measurements that I used for these two blocks:

Since then I came across different measurements that Megan shared and Brenda made a chart of on Flick:

I think I'll start fresh with some blocks for a new quilt. They are really fun to make!

New fabric! Got this from a de stash on IG. I love the destashes! Great fabric for bargain prices.

We interrupt fabric talk to share this exciting news...I've downloaded a new book! It's been ages since I read a book on the iPad. This one was recommended by a friend. She says it has a Downton feel. Well okay then! Are you watching the new season? I am once again, hooked. And with no Homeland......why not?!

Also getting back in a routine of hitting the trails with Duke. He loves it!

I've joined some new skill builder groups this year. I'll post about them soon.
Linking up to Really Random Thursday at Live a Colorful life!



  1. Your blocks are so beautiful!! I want to make some larger ones, too! I LOVE Downton Abbey!!

  2. I always miss out on IG destashes! I'm gonna look for that book at my library...I need a Downton fix ASAP! Monday (because I don't get to watch it on Sunday WAH) can't get here soon enough!

  3. I have my Xplus fabrics pulled and sorted already!

  4. Love! All of it. I need to figure out how to watch downtown! (we don't have tv!)
