Os and Xs

Et voila! The top line is well and truly wonky, but I got the hang of the cutting by the time I got to the second line. I ought to mention here that my lovey Dutch friend who set me on the road to quilting cuts with Stanley knives and blocks made out of MDF that her husband made for her. This is how I started and how the first 2.5 quilts were made (although I did invest in a proper cutter LOL). Os and Xs is the first time I have used a proper quilting ruler so it took a bit of time to get used to cutting to measurements, rather than blocks! Boy does it save on the cutter blades! Lovely daughter will be home in a minute and internet time is running out so a demain

Things are so much easier with the right tools. Having said that of course, our Grandmothers didn't have rotary cutters, acrylic rulers and all the rest of it and look at the beautiful items they made!

Your o & x quilt is looking great, I love the little hints of other fabric you have in there. Well done!
