X Marks the Spot in Make Modern Magazine

My mini quilt X Marks the Spot is in the latest issue of Make Modern magazine!

This is a great scrap-busting project and can be a quick finish too. It measures 26" square, making it perfect for a table topper or for hanging on a wall. The x's are pieced and then the circles are appliqued to the background, so no tricky inset circles here.

I quilted the spots in my version by outlining the x's and then stitching a spiral that matched the shape of each quadrant of the circle. I love how that makes the x really pop!

For the background, I chose a quilting design called Flourish, from Christina Cameli's book Step-by-Step Free Motion Quilting. I really love this design! It's pretty, it's quick to stitch and it can fit into just about any space.

I made one extra spot and added it to my pieced back. In this picture you can also see the linked circles I quilted in the borders. One of those circles has a faint x quilted through it as a little surprise for those who look closely at the quilt (in person, though - it doesn't show up in the picture)!
