One down and 8-ish to go

I finished my first X for my quilt.


It was so much fun to make!  Each of the four squares that make one x is 12" - I am figuring I need 9 x's (or 36 individual squares) to make a queen sized quilt.  I like the randomness of it - and it is random.  I tried very hard not to over think it.  I must put some more dark greens in the next one or that one strip is going to stand out.  I am hoping to knock out a couple more x's this week.  I hurt my wrist so I am taking a little knitting vacation.  That just leaves more time to sew!

I also finished my square for the Virtual Quilting Bee, but that one is under wraps until it gets to its destination.  Well, one person had a sneak peek.  But that's it.  I'm not sharing any more.  You can see the fabrics that made it in the final square here.  Once I got sewing, it came together pretty well.  I sent it off today so watch the mail, Jennifer.  I hope you like it.



Lovely! The x-quilt is going to be stunning.

ooh. Very pretty. I love the randomness of it. And honestly? I didn't notice the lonely green stripe until you pointed it out.

Also, I am curious. Are you making long rectangular strips and cutting them on the bias afterwards, or cutting the angles of each piece individually?

It's looking so good already.

It looks gorgeous! Your piecing is so nice and even - you're my hero. :)

I like that the individual pieces don't all match up size-wise -- a wider strip here meets up with a narrowed one there. Looks great.


This looks so great! I can't wait to see the progress:)


It is stunning! I love it. I can't wait to see the whole quilt!


it looks great. the colors......and the way it all lines up is perfect!
makes me want to sew.

The x quilt is going to be perfect. Random quilts are my favorites. The fabrics you have work so well together. I would love to see a tutorial on how you are putting it together. I can't wait to see the finished quilt. I also can't wait to see your virtual quilting bee square.


I feel so honored that you gave me a sneak peek of your block for the bee. There is no doubt in my mind that Jennifer will love it.

your x quilt is gonna be so great. who are you making if for?


erin, i love this! can't wait to see it all together.


This is going to be lovely, Erin! I need to start working on my table quilt.
