I’m excited to be able to take part in a block challenge for our Santa Barbara Modern Quilt Guild!! Last month I confidently signed on to this challenge (I hesitate most times because often I am can’t attend the meetings), partly because I love these fabrics so much and partly because I need a fun and quick little project. It’ll likely be my last one in this sewing space. Our fearless leader Alissa, chose these great Denyse Schmidt fabrics. I added two of my favorite texty fabrics and I couldn’t resist a bit of Essex Linen (hope that’s okay Alissa)! She has asked us make the Japanese x and + block, by City Stitches. I look forward to practicing some new skills with this brand new to me block!
