+ & X blocks Quilt

Quilt stats:
52" x 67"

I used tons of my favorite fabrics to make the blocks, the border is an amazing organic cotton I bought at Raystitch the colour is grown and it's so soft! The back is made from a wonderful Ikea fabric print with numbers.

What can I say I love this quilt! So much so I went a little overboard taking pictures of it by the mill. If you're not sick of looking at it yet you can see more photo's here.
