Almost every month I am tempted to begin a quilt just like the one chosen for that month's Mid-Century Modern Bee. August is no exception!
Mary chose the fabulous x&+ block which has received cult following on flickr. You can find the tutorial by Badskirt Amy here.
This is my second time to make this block for a bee and both times I've fallen hard.
The cutting is time consuming if you want to do a scrappy version (which is my favorite, of course) but the piecing is simple and straight forward. This pink version will be so cute for little girls!
Speaking of pink and little girls, I know someone who turned three last week!
Happy birthday my dear Janie Sue. You light up my life!
