The xplusalong phenom that has been all over Instagram is kind of rocking my world. I resisted the scrappy trip along, but I succumbed to the allure of the xplusalong block. I was organizing my stash over the weekend (more on that later), and discovered that I have a LOT of pink. So I decided to use some of it to do a couple of these blocks. I tried to be cool like Holly at Bijou Lovely and cut all my fabric beforehand, but that backfired. I realized I didn't have enough yellow for the background, so right now I only have enough different prints for about five blocks.
The color scheme is a little too strawberry shortcake for me at the moment, I think it might get a little overwhelming if the whole quilt looks like this, so I'm rethinking the colors.
Here is the first block, which was way fun to make. I'm stoked about getting back in the studio to crank some more of these out!
