 Xoxceptional Love

I'm involved in a quilting bee - by mail! The lovely and talented Cynthia Frenette started the Fab Bee and April is her month to 1) send out fabric and inspiration/ideas/instructions to the other participants and to 2) receive blocks made for her from the fabrics she sent out.
I was so inspired by her fabrics (many of which she designed herself, see Spoonflower) and her idea, that I got right to work and made my block. I drew up the pink branch thing and foundation pieced it. Then I pieced the background, cutting in some x's and o's - and I cut out the crazy heart and hand appliqued it to the background. I also made a little improvisational block with the leftovers, but I forgot to take a photo of it (oops), and sent it all back to Cynthia. Now if I could only figure out how to get a button on my sidebar that will connect to the Flickr photo page.....

  1. Love love love it!!! thank you so much again!! It's just awesome, I love all the little improv bits and bobs and the xox is perfect- I tend to sign my emails with that sometimes- even forgetting and doing when I sign off to a client lol!

    I'll post the improv block in the group pool- and you should be able to make a flickr badge with "flickr toys" then just paste the code in to your sidebar- I think ! :D
    ps xox!
