TWX7: Two more…

Gun in Sweden has sent me two more X blocks.

gun-twx-1 gun-twx-2Tealed with a Kiss (TWX) is looking good!  Now that I have the current quilt top down off the design wall, I must lay out the blocks I already have, to see what still needs to be made.  I think I’ll have to make some X blocks with a dark background to strengthen the impression of a big X of darker blocks on a background of lighter X blocks.  I already have some beautiful blocks featuring darker teal fabrics, but I suspect it’ll need the strength of a teal background to achieve more impact.

Another project that needs to wait till I’m back from our trip at the end of the month…

    Deeply impressed! I can just about sew on a button! Very best wishes for this project! And thank you for your very kind comment on my post in the kitchensgarden blog. I travel through Berkshire on the London coach quite often. Still impressively green! Am now following your blog, so look forward to your news! Very best wishes, Alison (Brackenbury) http://www.alisonbrackenbury.co.uk

      Welcome to Chiconia, a very different landscape indeed 🙂 I’m delighted to welcome another Farmy Friend. You’ll be pleased to know I don’t always write about sewing, there are regular doses of cooking and gardening too…

    Gun is so creative, even her simple X’S have pizzazz!

      The quilt is going to need both simple and complex, dark and light, so all formats are welcome. I love Gun’s blocks, whatever she’s working on, she has a real flair for colour.

    I’ve just sorted out a lovely piece of teal fabric for your quilt, just choosing a block, do you want me to try and do a darker background with a light kiss (would that be just a peck 🙂 )
