A New x and + quilt

There's the beginnings of a happy new quilt in Jane's sewing basket these days, the x and + Quilt. This is one that I have had my eye on for quite a while so it will be fun to see hers come together.

Her fabrics are a terrific collection of turquoise, purple and pink - very scrap happy. She's piecing it by hand again and when last we spoke, which was about a week ago, she had cut enough for about 25 blocks. Lots of cutting, but she's enjoying it and having fun mixing and matching the different combinations for each block.

There's a lot going on in this block so to tame it a bit and give the overall layout some structure she is using a collection of creams to create a background for the crosshatch that is created by the diagonal and vertical/horizontal grid pieces. Just love that large pink polka dot in the bottom right block!....M

What a great collection and combination of bright energized fabrics. Jane's going to have fun with this.
