Random Japanese + and X blocks

You’d think I could have made one more block before posting this picture. Alas, this was progress as of yesterday and I had to suspend fun operations to get back to more serious projects. With deadlines.

My One Block Over bee members made some of the blocks. I made some of the blocks. I’m so appreciative to have had the bee members sewing for me in May. It really gave this project a jump start.

I have a lot of cutting done for this but I NEVER have enough X fabrics cut. I have a hard time picking fabrics for the X part. Don’t know why.

After spending some time admiring the blocks over at the Japanese + and X blocks Flickr group, I think I’ll add some more colorful backgrounds and some more light fabrics for the X part. I don’t know, these are awfully addictive……

Today’s crop

Yeah, you’re making me nervous about the impending morning glory takeover. I’ve been considering other “gardens” around the neighborhood. I’d admired the morning glories. And then I saw a fence that had been wrapped fiercely in the little buggers. I’ll have to keep ours in check — haven’t let them go up on the porch roof at least. Until the takeover, I’ll continue to enjoy the day’s crop because it is an ever-changing scene.

And here’s today’s crop of sewing:

I must say, the shot cottons paper pieced like a DREAM! It was quite thrilling to see how nicely they fell flat at the seams!
