This month I finally had the motivation (obligation) to try a block I've been admiring for such a long time. The X and + block stole my heart the minute I saw it blogged last year and I followed the craze thinking, "wow, if only I had the time to make that..." So I was super happy when this month's Do. Good Stitches leader, Marika, chose this block for our circle because it gave me an excuse to sit down and try it. Marika asked for green and aqua combination blocks, as scrappy as we want, with low volume backgrounds. Here is what I came up with. Have I mentioned I LOVE these??? Especially when my lovely Stella photobombs them ;)
Have I mentioned that I'm also in love with Architextures? Thanks, Pam, for getting these wonderful fabrics in. If I keep using them for bees, I'm going to need to stock up on some more for myself!
