The "X" Quilt Demo

Here are a few pictures of my demonstration on the "X" Quilt this past Monday.  If you plan to do this quilt, perhaps the pictures will help you out.  I also found a free pattern at McCall's Quilting called Scrappity-do-dah, which is very similar to the quilt I demonstrated.  Check it out, as they offer instructions and fabric requirements for a 63" x 81" quilt.  While you are at McCall's Quilting site, look under "Bonuses" on the top bar, and you will see the tons of free patterns they offer.  So many wonderful quilts!

This quilt was made from an assortment of fat quarters.

Diana made this scrappy one by using up some of her stash and making squares.

Squares...cut diagonally...strip piece together....

If colors are planned, you can play with the layout of the blocks.  Many of the Log Cabin type layouts will work.

This one is like the "Streak of Lightening".  This one will be given as a soldier quilt.

These two table runners are made from charm pack sized squares.

And a little Valentine candle mat made from four blocks.
Hope you were all inspired by the demonstration to give this fast, fun, easy quilt a try!


  1. Your demo was most wonderful Laurie!!!

  2. Sorry I missed your demo. Think I can do it, got a tub of fabric from a snowbird friend, I may make her a quilt using this block. thanks for all your work for the guild. Sheila
