My “Easy X” Quilt

Posted by on June 3, 2015 in show and tell | 6 comments

Here is the finished quilt made from the November 2014 Easy X blocks. It turned out to be a graduation quilt for the beautiful daughter of a good friend. I’ve added a detail of the quilting done by Charlene Koppenol on her long-arm machine. She put a few crosses into the quilt in honor of the girl’s attachment to her church. I’m also showing you a picture of the backing, which was an incredibly lucky find at our local fabric store. Thank you to Sophie for giving us the block pattern and to all who made the beautiful blocks that made the quilt possible. Tiege's Finished Quilt

Note from Sophie: Now that this quilt is finished, I moved the previous post/photo of this project out of the gallery (and into Block Lotto Community).  You can find it (and all the nice comments) here: Easy X Flimsy Ready for Quilting


  1. I love the contrast of the curved areas and straight lines in the quilting … and that backing really was a great find. It’s perfect.

  2. Elizabeth that is one beautiful quilt…what a lucky graduate!

  3. Wow your quilt is gorgeous! The backing is perfect. Great finish!!

  4. Oh wow! I may have to steal, I mean “borrow” you idea. I am not liking the layout I chose for my blocks and have already begun riiiiiiiping them out.

    • I am happy that you like it — I love “en pointe” settings and often try them out on Block Lotto squares. They have worked beautifully on two big quilts. And I am pleased to share with another Block Lotto member. Isn’t it fun to make a quilt when someone else did all the intricate block-making??

  5. This is wonderful! I love what you did!
