X & +


A nine inch X and + block is the block of the month at Block Lotto. 
I love this block and am hoping that by making a lucky 7 blocks my name will be drawn as a winner. 

Back in 2012 I made a quilt with a six inch (and more unstructured or scrappier) version of the block.


72 x 79
I Love Cherries (aka Hi-Ho Cherrio after the game of same name that I also used to love)

I'm thinking I would really like another with a nine inch version of the block. Fingers crossed that I win! I haven't had a win this year yet.

Good luck!! I love the Xand+ block too, and it on my short list of possible blocks for RSC2016. Your 2012 quilt is delightful, BTW.

I like this block, too. Your scrappier and new ones are both lovely.

I've been thinking about this block since I saw the Block Lotto pick. I'm going to make one (or two) as a test for RSC. You know, along with all the other blocks in the world...
I love Hi Ho Cherrio the quilt! Maybe I should be making the 6" block?
Here's hoping you win Block Lotto!

Ooh these are lovely! I like both your older one and the way the new one is coming along, it's much more graphic this time around isn't it? Still scrappy though, which is my favourite style :)

I love your bright Cherrio quilt and I also appreciate all your close up pictures that show the details of your construction and those fabulous fabrics! Good luck in the lotto!
