Mini X's

Ever since Debbie posted her Mini X quilt at A Quilter's Table I have been wanting me make one myself. Luckily, she posted a tutorial for it and it is charm friendly! A win-win in my book as I'm trying to use up the charm packs in my stash. I even was able to use only my stash for this project.

Detail of Mini X's

Debbie's instruction were really easy to follow and this could be done in a few hours. I got distracted doing other things in between steps, so I finished the binding this morning. I went back and forth between machine and hand stitching it but I wanted to share it today and also give machine binding another go. I'm not sure I would ever use it on a larger project, but for smaller projects, it makes quick work of them.

If you make one of these beauties yourself, feel free to share in her Flickr group as well!

I have pieces cut for another mini quilt that I'm hoping to get working on tomorrow. I think I am getting addicted to these because they are a great way to practice techiniques and a quick finish!

Thank you, Debbie, for sharing this tutorial!

Linking up with Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story and the Stash Project at Clover & Violet.

This is really cute- I am working on a bunch of place mats for the holidays and maybe I can incorporate these x's....

How cute! What a great way to use a charm pack. I love making minis for the same reason....they are quick and a fun way to try a new technique.

Thanks for linking up to finish it up Friday!
