x and + quilt top finished!

what with my new sewing room(!!!!!), i have been sewing every night and finished all of the blocks for my x and + quilt on thursday. yay!  so, yesterday morning i got up bright and early and laid out the squares. i'm glad i had the foresight to ask brian to help me move the little couch on friday night so i'd be ready to go. there's no room to lay out a big quilt in this house without moving furniture :)

six hours later everything was together! lighting conditions were not good for photographs, but i took them anyway. there is another third of the quilt folded over the clothes line. it's pretty big!  once again, i'm not sure how i feel about this quilt-it's such a hodgepodge of fabrics, but i do love scrappy quilts. it will grow on me!

someone does seem to like it already, right violet?

happy super bowl sunday! i really don't care who wins, but i like peyton manning so i guess i'll root for the broncos. go broncos!!


  1. just finished making a 'quilt sandwich' myself, a second medallion quilt and i like this one better than the first ! yours is looking great too, it's good to see it all together as i can understand it now and it is clever and intricate.
    is superbowl baseball or american football ?

    1. hi susan! ah yes, the back-breaking, knee-aching quilt sandwich! i dread that part.......your quilt must be beautiful, i wish i could see it! do you hand quilt or use the machine? the super bowl is american football, a HUGE event here. brian loves it. i bet your family would enjoy it too! thanks for your comment :)

  2. It looks fabulous, I love the mix of fabrics, I could spend ages picking out favourites. Well done!

  3. Hi Jennifer, I love your quilt top, it's so happy and beautifully made.
    Your work area is looking wonderful too.
