The pattern is called Xs and Os. The inspiration for the quilt came from a You Tube video by the Missouri Star Quilt Co. I didn't want to make too deep of borders so I used four and a half blocks across the width of the quilt and alternated the placement of the half-block on each row. Which really made the Xs and Os stand out. I discovered that after I had the quilt laid out so the light and dark blocks are bunched in areas. (You know, one of those, I wonder what this would look like ideas?)
Figuring out how I was going to pull off the way I wanted the quilting to look was a bit of a challenge.
For the back I decided I wanted to do strips of fabric.
Have a good day!
