People say that quilty inspiration is everywhere and this quilt really proves that! Last spring Alyce, of Blossom Heart Quilts, hosted the DIY Design Challenge on Instagram. If I remember correctly, for the first week her instructions were simply to take pictures of whatever you saw that could serve as inspiration for a quilt. Well, one day that week I went for a walk and discovered that someone had taken orange spray paint to all the manhole covers. I immediately stopped to snap a picture. I'm sure anyone looking out their window thought I was crazy, stopping in the middle of the road to take a picture of a manhole cover!
Well, crazy or not, from that picture came this quilt design :)
The x's are pieced into the spots and the spots are appliqued onto the background, so the quilt comes together really quickly.
Download your copy of the pdf pattern through either my Etsy shop or my Payhip shop now!
If you make your own X Marks the Spot quilt, I'd love to see it! Tag me @devotedquilter if you post a picture on Instagram, send me a link to a blog post or even just email me a picture (devotedquilter at gmail dot com).
