yes, another place to get roped into unplanned projects. ;)
(i'm @rachelgriffith if you're on there.)
enter the #xplusalong.
i thought the x and + block was pretty cool, but i didn't feel the need to join the others.
that was until holly starting making her blocks.
her blocks just spoke to me.
(see holly's completed x and + quilt HERE.)
y'all know me, i heart a good quilt along, but there's only so many hours in the day.
and in an effort to make sure i don't add 50 more WIPs, i like to make smaller commitments.
i had to learn this lesson the hard way. trust me.
so, here's what i did.
i made one big block.
it's 24 1/2" x 24 1/2"
and just like that, my need to have my own x and + quilt is satisfied.
i'm planning to make a great, big pillow out of it.
i want to hand quilt it. (i blame you, camille.)
and i want to use perle cotton.
but i've never hand quilted a thing.
so, here's where y'all come in.
i'm not sure what weight to buy. (is 8 just right?)
i'm not even sure how to get started. (any pointers?)
and lastly, what color should i use? (light grey? pink? yellow?)
i'm hoping y'all can help me out.
please and thank you.
