Final Day to the X Block Hop + Giveaway

Here we are at the final 
day of the


A huge thank you to Doris 
and the new owner of 
these fun templates, 
that come in a variety of sizes.

or


I chose to use the template pictured
above. 



I was able to play with 
a few designs in EQ8
and came up with this fun, 
and kind of crazy quilt.



Let's just say I stepped out of my comfort zone 
on this quilt as well.
The colors are way brighter and
more vibrant that any that I have
done before.


I just did a little straight line quilting
with a some Aurifil 40 wt. in #1231.
It matched the Kona Chartreuse 
to a tee.


 I love that you can take a simplistic
block and make it into a
complex design.



If you are interested in 
the templates,

There will be some awesome
creativity, so go and check out today's hoppers.
