Easy X blocks = Easy Tree Quilt

Easy X blocks = Easy Tree Quilt

  The author of the tutorial for this sweet tree quilt uses a completely different technique for making her little X blocks (AKA quilty cross stitch blocks), but look what she made from them … and think about what we could make from the Easy-X blocks! Find the tutorial here:  The Tree is Trimmed. If you used our 7 inch Easy X blocks in this layout, you’d have a bed quilt (70 by 84 inches) … wouldn’t it make a fun quilt for a bed? I would probably add borders, some star blocks in the “sky” and maybe...

I got nine of these blocks done this month.  These are fun and easy blocks to do!  And I love the color scheme this month too.  Thanks for a fun block, Sophie.  Based on the number of blocks entered in the drawing, this seems to be a popular block.  Good luck to everyone!   I have a long-term project using this same...

The deadline for entering the giveaway has passed, so if you posted a comment or sent me email because you couldn’t post a comment you are in. The drawing will be later today because I am following everyone’s advice and following up after my accident. After spending 2 hours on the phone with the insurance company who covered the car that hit me when walking across the street last week, I am now biding my time at an Urgent Care … and hoping I don’t catch anything that will make me have to cough or sneeze–two...
