TWX3: A handful of XXXs

I’ve decided to kick off the New Year with some kisses (XXs).

Tealed with a Kiss (TWX) will be the next quilt out of the traps, and I thought I’d show the blocks I have received so far and below them, three I’ve just made, in case any of you who have kindly offered to make a couple want some visual reference.


twx-collage-2The plan is that the 9 darkest blocks will form a large X on the quilt, surrounded by lighter blocks. It’s going to be 5 blocks wide by 6 blocks tall. The bottom row will feature the teal ribbon in the centre of the row, with the two heart blocks either side.  I’ll be needing 6 more dark blocks and 12 more light blocks.

Below is a list of the participants. In black are those who’ve already made and sent their blocks. In red are those who’ve offered but not yet made or sent theirs. If you have a preference for dark or light blocks, tell me, so we don’t end up with too many of either sort. It’s first come, first served, though, so have a look at your teal stash and  try and let me know as soon as you can which you’d like to make. If there’s a shortfall of anything, I’ll make it up, and if any blocks are made which are surplus to requirements, I’ll use them on a later quilt.

Kate Chiconi: light scrappy X, dark wonky X and teal ribbon
Carla Morris: light ‘elephant’ X
Lynn Hutton: dark ‘star’, dark X
Sue Brown: two heart blocks, bowtie X and 4 patch X
Ali Kelly: light small Xs and light wonky X
Jenny Ladbrooke: two light scrappy Xs
Robin Murphy: two dark X blocks
Nanette Gilbert
Kathy Reeves
Kate Bottrell: one dark, one light block
Esther Frenzel
Gun Adrian
Margaret Creek

Right, I think I’ll go and make another light block or two…

  1. Going to be another very very lovely collaboration 🙂

  2. More teal, then? Do you dream in teal?

      It’s beginning to feel like it! But after April, I can go mad with lavish quantities of all sorts of other colours. I am actually considering asking OCA if I can introduce some other colours for next year’s quilt, it’ll make things a bit more interesting 🙂

    I need to get Esther’s blocks done for January – I’m usually ahead of myself with F2F but, what with Christmas, etc……… Anyway, once I’ve done those, I’ll see how you’re getting on and maybe I could make another couple.

    Hi Kate, I was just contemplating my colour choices for these today! I can do one of each if that’s ok?

    Oh good! None of them look like mine! That’s my project for the rest of this week!

  7. I’m hoping mine will get to you soon. They were popped in the post (from the UK) a few days before Christmas. Fingers crossed you get them soon.

      Normal service from the UK is 2 weeks, but with Christmas I’ll be allowing a week extra. Thank you so much, I’ll be looking forward to a squishy in my mailbox, and I’ll post about it when it arrives 🙂

  8. Hi Kate!
    I will put a light and a dark one together for you this weekend.
