Xxxxxxx- O! Following directions for a kiss is much like piecing a block.....

I have always enjoyed the wonky X or cross in quilts and when I saw Sew Katie Did's recent quilt in person at Island Quilter, I made it a goal to try them out. This is my love note to Sean....after dates of hugs and "Can we go on another date"s.....I finally got the kiss that became the center of my universe.....hugs and kisses frineds!
If you are familiar with my quirky cornball humor....this little text could not be helped. Instructions for piecing 2 fabrics together seam-ed apropos for the act of kissing also.....
My sister's beauty! Can you believe how this piece has come along. Ming boggling to me her patience and exactness. These blocks are so small and so BIG with color and talent.
Mom is at it again with her needle turn applique and use of brights and blacks. How fun is this piece with all of the different components. I remember her starting this in March when we were looking for a home in Seattle and now....settled and her quilt near completion. She has made a Sarah Fielke eagle that she will most likely applique in the center. PERFECT!
A past quilt of mine that I wanted to post as a finale to this post. May KINDness abound in your home and lives this coming week! Thank you for visiting me. Em
