x plus x = panels

Three things to be happy about:
(1) Youtube Missouri Star tutorials
(2) minty toothpaste
(3) hot coffee

Still happy about that first cuppa in the morning!  In a Rugrats cartoon a few years ago Tommy and Chuckie were pretending to be grownups eating breakfast before going to work.  Chuckie: "Mr. Tommy, this coffee tastes like mud!"  Tommy:  "It is mud, Mr. Chuckie!"

Ahh, that first cuppa - tastes like hazelnut!

I'm piecing my x and plus blocks by groups of nine to make it easy on myself.

Three rows of panels, plus one odd row...

I saw this after I sewed on the right panel - ouch!  What are the odds of having two identical fabrics side by side?  More to the point, what are the odds of me unsewing this seam???

I think I may have used just 3 of those squares in the whole thing.

So here's progress (can't see those two identical squares, right?)

One panel done, two more to go!

It shrinks horizontally by two inches after sewing.

That's it for now, time for breffus, sew forth and sew on...


  1. It is so scrappy that I doubt anyone (other than you) will ever notice.

  2. When we have show-n-tell at the Bee meeting I am going to find that block. Good work.
