My interpretation of a hugs and kisses quilt, paper pieced of course.
While designing the quilt For the love of geese I played around with ideas for blocks to surround the medallion. There were several, none of which in my opinion blended well with the spikey geese border.
I pulled these couple block designs out along with the second test medallion block. My mission was to use the X and O blocks to create a design around the medallion. You know, use up some misfit blocks. Turns out, these two blocks compliment each other so well no additional block/s are needed. Xando is born. Yes Xando, x and o.
Lori at Quilting Needs inspired me to show the X block. We all make mistakes and have those less than perfect blocks and I am guilty of not showing my worst work. The X block shown is a test block, I don’t fix test blocks. They are tucked away in a misfit pile of their own.
My Xando top is almost complete and being tested.
