For the month of April, I have taken up Frédérique's Quilting Patchwork and Applique challenge to blog daily (except Sundays) on a quilt topic related to a letter of the alphabet.
* * * * * * * * * *
I thought it would have been hard to find a topic for the letter "X" except that right before I was making up my topic list, I had been looking at this quilt.....
I had also just recently caught a special sale on Barbara Brackman's Blockbase software. When I looked up the "Arrowhead" block....
...turns out it is in the category of blocks called " Four X Blocks"! While I recognized many of the blocks, I hadn't known that the blocks were actually grouped as a category. Some other blocks in this category are:
|Quarter Square blocks|
|Spiderweb and Hummingbird blocks|
|I see "Old Maid's Ramble" from the first Moda Sampler and the "Starry Patch" block which is available as an Accuquilt BOB die.|
Another X block I plan to make is the block for Kathleen Tracey's "Soldier's Cot Quilt" from her "Civil War Sewing Circle" book.
Have you made any of the X Blocks shown here? Are there any on your "To Do" list?
Linking up with Frédérique and the other Challengers at Quilting Patchwork and Applique. Bonne journée!
