X & Plus Quilt

Hey Folks! I'm proud to announce that my X & Plus quilt is complete!
I have this handmade Lap quilt for sale now in my Etsy Shop KITSCHYMAMA.
Here is a little sneak peek at the journey behind makin this beauty.
This is a Jen Kingwell Design Pattern that honestly seemed a little intimidating at first, but turned out to be sooo much fun. I never got sick of making these designs. Of course is was easy goes it the first few blocks, but this was by far the most rewarding quilt to initially assemble. 
I would force myself to at least make one block everyday until it was complete. People always ask me, where do you find the time. It's easier when you are basically looking forward to it daily. 
I made sure to use lots of my own handprinted fabrics as well as tons from my vintage stash. It turned out gorgeous and kinda intense, I love it!
Here is the finished beaut! It measures 51 inches x 67.5 inches, kind of a larger lap quilt or perfect for a twin or toddler bed. 
My husband being a good sport and patiently quilt modeling for me on a windy day.... :)
