I'm back. I finished up my x and + quilt a while ago, but it was a christmas gift, so I am just now able to share it here. This was one of those quilt alongs that I started last year.
I really love this quilt, I loved making it and love the finish. It's so very scrappy, but there's still some order!
for the backing I used a large solid piece (I think it's kona putty) and then added strips of fabric I had in my stash
It's pretty hard to see the quilting, but I did swirls (I love quilting swirls) on the x sections and zigzags on the +. I like how it turned out. There's a few things I will do differently next time, but it turned out just how I pictured it.
I went back and forth on the binding...almost settled on a navy blue, but ended up with a black and white stripe (a la Red Pepper Quilts). It just works so well on scrappy quilts.
