    Cool "X" Rated Quilting Fun!

    I LOVE making X-Blocks quilts. You start with simple piecing such as a strip set or nine patch, then cut with the X-Blocks ruler to make the magic.

    This pattern is called 'Thornton' and is a little more challenging than some of the simpler patterns, but it still wasn't difficult. You first make a small block using the BellyButton ruler. That becomes the center of the larger X-block, which uses a partial seam technique.

    The leftovers get made into the table runner and a few placemats (I don't have photos of the placemats yet.)

    Hope you enjoy looking.

    Wow! I'm taking an X block class tomorrow and I like yours much better than the sample I saw. Could be a technique thing, but probably color choices are what make the difference. I like my colors - all strips cut and ready to go, so hope it turns out as nice as yours!

    Wow, I love your quilt. It sounds interesting and might need to add it to my "someday" list to make.

    There are lots of different X-Blocks patterns, Lynn. Which one are you doing? I'm sure it will be great - have fun in your class!

    I love that design, and your choice of colors. Very op-arty.

    this is still on my to do list. What was your color placement before re-cutting? I've had the ruler maybe 3 or 4 years now? Guess I'll have to live to 100!!

    Was that patterning a book or a single pattern? It's wonderful.

    Me, too! I think I bought a couple of patterns to use with it but the whole lot of it is buried under numerous other UFO's... LOL! But after seeing how fabulous yours turned out, I may have to excavate mine & get the show on the road. Thank you for sharing & for the inspiration!

    I haven't seen this pattern, but I love it. I've made Mo's Basket X-Block and have a couple others on my to-do list.

    I was looking for a metal wallhanging hanger in my drawer full of templets and ran across my two X Block rulers and three patterns today. I thought to myself, I need to play with these! I love the look and yours came out great!
