West End Finish

I've had the best time this month working on this new pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

 It's a nice mix of large and small X blocks with a few background swaps thrown in for fun.

I started with large blocks, which took no time and was super easy since the directions call for making the blocks a tad too big then squaring them up.

I did not relish the thought of piecing 170 plus small x blocks,

but I got into a routine of making a dozen at a time, and when I had enough to piece a section of the quilt top, I did,

breaking things up and making me want to piece those little blocks instead of dreading them.

The fabric is a collection by Timeless Treasures.

This fabric is a couple years old, a find from one of my rare quilt shop visits.   I had never seen this fabric before and have never seen it again, but I fell in love with the colors and designs and think I saved this fabric for the perfect pattern.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 227
The pattern is West End by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co
The fabric is by Timeless Treasures
It has approximately 2,083 pieces.

Add West End to your to do list, any style of fabric will work for this versatile pattern.

  1. I like the mix of sizes of the X's in this version of the X quilt

  2. I really like this quilt, and yours is perfect. Might have to start rummaging around the stash!

  3. Love this! Just curious, why was it a rare quilt shop trip? Do you want to use your stash or are you like me, no shops less than an hours drive away? I'm so glad you still blog, btw!

  4. Very, very cool, Thelma. We have our quilt guild show this weekend and set up is today. Have a great day!!

  5. I really like this - the fabrics, the blocks, the mix of block sizes, and the way it all came together. Another great finish for you.

  6. Love the photo of the tin with all the little blocks in it... so adorable!
    That is a lot of sewing and wow it's a terrific quilt... my eyes were wondering all over the photos taking in the detail!

  7. Lots of x's. I could see doing a large one with five little ones on two sides and getting it done that way with a few extra "sashing strips of small x's to fill in. Looks great!
