My friend, Robin has decided to make a baby quilt using the Japanese X and + blocks as seen here.
The nursery will be purple and gray.
So she went out looking for those colors plus some aqua and a touch of gold.
She found some great diaper holders with owls on them in those colors
so she used that as the basis of her quilt.
She just took off and went on a shopping spree and her blocks are SWEET!
She also decided that since the people have a black cat there should be black cats in the blocks too. THEN, it became an Owl and the Pussycat theme!
It's interesting how these things evolve isn't it?
She doesn't have a blog and so I asked her if I could share the blocks she has done so far on my blog.
You are in for a treat.
Sit back and enjoy the eye candy!!
This is my favorite grouping of blocks. Especially that one on the lower left corner with all those black kitties!
Love those pearl bracelets
I think the owls in the tree are GREAT!
Loving those Alexander Henry owls, and the gray seed heads too!
Neptune and Nest? Fantastic!
Tula's snail and turtle look great in there too.
I like that spikey fabric in purple and also in gray.
Do I spy Heather Ross mice in there too??
Owls with clock tummies???
Who knew there was so much owl fabric out there?
This is the kitty fabric the cats came from in that block I love so much.
There are still a few more blocks to go and some black cat fabric to arrive to make them.
I will share the rest, if I can, when they are finished too.
Aren't these great??
I have loved this block for a long time and
seeing all these adorable blocks makes me want to stop everything and make them right now!!
Have you made a quilt using these blocks?
Maybe we should do a QAL using them.
What do you think???
