Quilt History Block for January--Double X done and Some Fabric...

I fell in love with these fabrics and had to have them. Shh, I didn't tell Kathy I ordered them! I got a yard of each and may put them into three crib size quilts--a big block type style that is easy to make and cute but not sure yet. I fell in love with the owls mainly! It is from the Forrest Fun line by Kauffman.
This little cut came free with my order. So adorable! I am sure some of these will wind up in the I Syp quilts I make.
I borrowed this next picture from Denyse Schmidt's website...this is her Patchwork Promenade cheater cloth. I think it is cool and want a chunk of it! I decided when I get my first check from my second job I am splurging and getting a few panels--all this extra working should go for more than bills, right?

Here is my stitching that I just finished up today....

I put it into the Double X Block for my Quilt History class already too! Looks pretty good to me and I am excited to do all the blocks and have a complete quilt top by the end of the year! The block was designed by Marie D. Webster and published in her "Quilts: Their STory and How to Make Them book in 1915. It is Brackman Block #2179.
