Cross-X Last Call

June Cross-X Quilt Blocks3

Well, my Cross-X Friendship Swap partner has a new gig in town: she’s expecting a baby, and I’m more than happy for her!  So, since we were so near our goal, we decided to do an all-call, last-call and finish up the swapping.  Here are my last blocks that I sent to Krista, of Krista-Stitched.  Three (above)  and Four (below).  And is the tradition of this swap, we do a blog post on the last Friday of the month about our swaps.

May Cross-X Quilt Blocks stacked

May Cross-X Quilt Blocks4Here are the four in double-vision; all total for this swap: seven.  We now have about 55 total blocks (she does the math, I don’t) and I’ll get them all out and arrange them and get them sewn together.  She wrote and said a few more were en-route to me, so I’ll wait a bit before sewing it all together.  It’s been a fun run at this, and thanks to Krista and our Flickr group, for giving me the motivation to make some Cross-X blocks!


Coming up soon is the quarterly reveal of our Four-in-Art Art Quilt Group.  Our most recent theme is Urban, with the quarterly theme of Landmarks.  The Big Reveal of all of our quilts is May 1st, next Friday.  I’ve got my ideas and am working forward with them.  Stop back then and take a look!

  1. How fun to be finished with making the + and x blocks and to be thinking of setting them together in a quilt! Carla and I have one month to go and we’ll be tackling the final stage soon too! Looking forward to seeing your interpretation of “Landmarks”!

  2. Didn’t that go by fast! Cindy and I are nearly done too. I need to ake four more. Enjoy your day and your happy mail when it arrives ; )

  3. Love all your blocks. Maria and I started a month late so we are playing catch up. It was such fun and so much fun to meet new ladies. I look forward to seeing your quilt.

  4. I enjoyed watching Krista make blocks for you at our retreat a few weeks ago, Elizabeth. You are going to have a fun quilt. Thanks for joining up with us! We are planning a “finished quilt” post for the last Friday in September. Oh, and I didn’t know about Krista’s happy news! Yay!
