japanese x blocks!

I've been moving a bit slow this week! I've had some medical issues lately and finally got into the doctor a few days ago. I've had a lump that has grown, and it has become a little too painful to bear sometimes. I've finally got a date for surgery later this month to have it removed. I'm a bit scared, but am glad that it will be gone soon. :)

For sewing I haven't gotten as much done as I hoped, but started working on that pretty stack!! Thanks so much for all the input, and advise!! I ended up just adding a few more fabrics to balance it out a little and I've added in a bit more color. I decided on the Japanese X block, as that is such a fresh and modern block. I'm so glad I went that route, as I really love how they are turning out, and I think it is just my partners style!!

Badskirt-Amy has a fabulous tutorial with diagrams and step by step instructions. I even printed the diagrams out so they were right there while I was stitching the blocks together!

I have 9 to make for the pillow. I think that will be perfect number to give it that real scrappy look!! I can't wait to see how the pillow turns out!!

Here are the blocks individually!



Aren't these fun blocks!?! You may be seeing a bunch more in the future as they are so fun to make!! :)


I hope you are having a fabulous week!! See you next week!!
