I have chosen the X Plus block and these are the two main colors, turquoise and purplish red (fuchsia, magenta or pinks), prints or solids, can be scrappy. Here are some suggestions
You will need:
8 - 3 1/2 inch squares in low volume whites, creams for the corner triangles. Can be scrappy, solids or prints.
4 - 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 rectangles of a black and white print or gray print or solid for the cross edges. Please use the same for all 4 pieces.
Choose either the turquoise, any shade or the purplish red/pink, prints or solids as the main inner cross.
1 - 2 1/2 by 6 1/2 inch rectangles
2 - 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inch squares
4 - 5 1/2 inch squares of the alternative color of the middle center cross
Draw a diagonal line on the 8 - 3 1/2 low volume squares. Place 2 of the squares on the opposite corners of the 5 1/2 squares. Sew along diagonal lines, trim excess fabric and press.
Sew 2 - 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch B & W (or gray) rectangles to the ends of the 2 1/2 by 6 1/2 rectangle and 1 - 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 square to the each to the 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 B & W rectangle.
Sew diagonal blocks to each center B & W with 2 1/2 sq.
Then sew top and bottom strips to center horizontal strip
Block will be 12 1/2 inches unfinished (12 inch finished)
Here are some I made.
Thanks in advance,
