X Marks the Jewel-toned Spot in November

Posted by on November 1, 2014 in housekeeping | 1 comment

Karen-X2-FeaturedIn November we’re making a 7-inch square (finished size) Easy X block in jewel tones with black or very dark background.  Karen made this block. I definitely see colors of Jade and Malachite in that fabric.

Download the color guidelines and block pattern is here:

Easy X Quilt Block Pattern



Add the tag easy X to all your blog posts about this block. The category should be blocks when you are posting photos of your blocks to enter them in the drawing; use the category sent and received when you are posting about mailing or receiving blocks; and the category show and tell to share projects you make from this block (whether they are lotto blocks or blocks you make for yourself.


Color Guidelines


The BACKGROUND fabric is Black (solid or black-on-black print) or a very dark color.

The X fabric is a Jewel tone fabric.  It can be a solid, a tone-on-tone print or a multicolor print in which all the colors are jewel tones.

You make multiple blocks, you can use the same VERY DARK BACKGROUND fabric in multiple blocks but each X block should be made from a unique jewel-tone fabric.

The sample of blocks in the virtual X quilt are made by Charlene, Gwen, Jen, Julie, Karen, Margaret, Nancy, Peggy, Rho, Wilma  and me.
