Japanese x and + Quilt Top

Finally, some pics of my Japanese x and + top that I finished quite a while ago.


Not the best photo's, but you get the idea.


I'm still working on my pink and brown Japanese x and + and o quilt, it needs more blocks added on to make a decent lap quilt size. Hopefully I will get to that soon.


Part of the fun of these blocks is all the fussy cutting you can do (I love those butterflies).


These blocks are a riot of colour!!


Speaking of colour, we went to one of our local beaches the other day and I must say, I adore the colour of some of the beach boxes we have here on the Mornington Peninsula.


 This one almost looks edible!!


Wherever you are, have a fabulous weekend. xo

Gorgeous header! Spring seems to have sprung at your neck of the wood. And of course I love your Japanese X quilt. The colours just scream "Spring", don't they?

I am in love with both versions!! But I must say that the brightly colored one is calling my name... can you hear it? ;) Boy do I just adore those colorful beach huts!! Fantastic. I can see myself living in a house painted in those colors.

What do people do in the "cute" little beach huts? They look pretty tiny to me.

You always have such a way with color and pattern. These quilts are very cool and I love them, as usual!

p.s. I "pinned" the Japanese X quilt cause I really love it!

Pauline said...

The x and + quilts are fabulous! I've never seen that particular pattern before. The pink and brown combination is a favorite of mine already. I love pink with green and will have to try it with browns now. So glad I found you!

These quilts are soooo pretty. Amazing how different they look with the different fabrics.

Love the beach houses!! It would be fun to paint a house with these colors though the neighbors probably wouldn't appreciate it LOL.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this quilt!!! Your addition of the black and red to the pastels is brilliant. It's a riot of happiness.

The japaneese X quilt is fabulous! I love all that colour. It will be great eye spying for all the different fabrics.

Looking so terrific. Because of this quilt, I've been collecting "wordy" fabrics for mine. I hope to have one at some point as well. Thanks for posting the photos.

How great would it be to hold a mini quilt show at the beach huts? They'd be so gorgeous strung up on and between them!

Janet said...

Your top is gorgeous Cathy, I love it. Love the beach huts too, how fun.
