I tried to make some Japanese x and + blocks from the tutorial by Badskirt Amy. It didn't turn out too bad but don't look too closely as not everything is lined up perfectly. I am still a quilting novice and need more practice. This will be another block for the sampler quilt that I am making for my bed. It's quite fun as I can use lots of my fabrics- some that I have had for years, and I can also use scraps. I have a huge container of scraps.
