X and O Quilt

I love making quilts.  I love finding sweet fabric and dreaming about what I can create with it.  For me, making quilts is a lot like painting.  I LOVE to paint, of course, I don't have much time for painting these days.  Painting takes a lot of me just sitting in front of a blank canvas; it's sorta like waiting for water to boil. I have to wait for inspiration and that takes time and thought.  With two little ones my thoughts are very scattered and unfocused. Of course, I'm a little scattered and easily distracted all on my own! hahaha

Anyway, I adore this new fabric I found.  It's sweet and just so...Me.  ;)  I still need to add some sashing before I started pinning.  I found my inspiration for this quilt on a tutorial by Missouri Star Quilt Co.  Their tutorials are so fun and easy!  (no, I don't work for them or profit from them in any way.  I'm just new to quilting and they have a bunch of easy to follow ideas!)  It's an X and O variation pattern.

Little Man insisted that I take a picture of his little Lizard.  He says it has crazy eyes.  :)
 Loving Life, Little Mama Hen.
