More + and x blocks

Loooving this one

(I have copied this next bit from a post in Flickr, but I thought I might ask you guys out there the questions too - and maybe just maybe you might try it too?)


How Much I Am Enjoying These Blocks!! capitalised for emphases

I cannot think of a block that I have enjoyed making so much - what is it?
Is it the rummaging through my huge scrap bag?

Is it the initial indecision then a lightbulb goes on and it's a Yes to a combination that I would never have put together before?

Is the so so easy cutting, sewing and voila!

Is the serious lack of pinning that I don't have to do, cos it just comes together like magic?

Is it the staring at the design wall of the finished blocks and working out which one I like the best?

Do I like the + to stand out or do I like the x to stand out, or maybe the little 4 squares to push their way into my sight?

Why do you like yours?

Don't know the answers but the more you go on about them the more I need to find time to try it out!!! I spy that gorgeous alphabet fabric that you bought a week or so ago....does that mean it's a scrap already? Have you made something out of it? BTW - interested in taking part in the Mystery Medallion Quilt???

Wow! I'm loving these blocks so much too!

I think it's when it doesn't feel like a chore - that's when the pure enjoyment shines through.
