This a question/answer post...
If you buy those alphabet panels, do you always make an alphabet quilt?
I have purchased SEVERAL. Too many for one boy, ahem.
Then I think that I would like to do a "Jacob" or even a "Jacob Henry" (Pretty clever of us not to repeat letters, huh.) quilt.
That would leave several letters left over - like "X" as an example. Which got my brain thinking the other day & got my fingers pulling fabrics from my stash.
I'd kind of like to make an "X Marks the Spot" quilt. I have pulled, Rx (written, not just the image), Xylophone, X-Ray, Lunch box (written, not just the image), etc. images from my novelty fabric stash. In addition to the "X" letter fabrics & the Alphabet panels.
Am I crazy & alone in this manner of quilty thought? Do you have any "X" fabrics that you can share? I'd love to get the word "fox", an "X" on a treasure map, "X" using sign language, & any other "novel" interpretations of the "X." If you just want to get in on a clever idea - I am collecting 5 inch squares - or 5 inch finished pieced/appliqued/embroidered blocks...
Maybe you can just leave a list of "X" items in my comments... Maybe if you yell out ____ I will then go to my stash & say, "YAY, this boat can be an 'x-boat.'" (Hey many a dinghy has been turned in to a yacht thusly.)
