More Japanese + and X Blocks





Ok, I'm having way way too much fun making these Japanese + and x blocks!  I stayed up past my usual bed time making more blocks.  I think making these blocks are the most fun I've ever had making a quilt!  I love using the scraps I've got on hand.  Yes, and a special thanks to Amy, for the Munki Munki scraps you sent me:)  I didn't originally intend to use them in this way, but I'm just loving using them.  My next goal is to see if I can get a hold of some wordy, text sort of Japanese fabrics to use for the x part.  Check out what Tamiko did with her amazing blocks here

These are really cute! What makes them Japanese? Are they from a japanese quilting book or japanese import fabrics? I have a couple of japanese magazines and their designs are so interesting. Twists on european traditionals thanks to looking at if from a different cultural perspective. I have a korean magazine on its way to me now. Can't wait!

I can see how these blocks could be addictive! So fun to choose the goofy/quirky fabrics. Definitely NOT grandma's calico's...much more fun!!
