Yippee!! I finally finished my x and + quilt! I love all the fabrics I used and I can look at the quilt for hours!
The quilt is based on and inspired by a Japanese quilt made by Setsuko Inagawa that is popular among many internet/bloggy/flickr quilters. Here is the Flickr group for the quilt along for this quilt. And here on Amy-badskirt's blog you can find a tutorial for the blocks.
I made 25 blocks, using some of my very favorite fabrics. Some fabrics have text, some are shirt fabrics I bought in Shanghai, there is some vintage fabric I bought at Liberty's in London, some treasured scraps. I added a wide border of Kei dot fabric. All to give it a scrappy, Japanese look.
And this is the back. I think it looks rather Japanese too. Like a belted kimono.
I quilted this with lots of diagonal lines. That was fun to do. I'm still so happy I have a walking foot for my machine.
I love how this quilt turned out!!
