Circles, crosses, squares

Making some progress on the denim.  I have spent some time unpicking (and I hate unpicking) and replacing just a few of my circles with little 9 patches.  I've also had a go at a couple of sort of X blocks.  

Now that the original chunks have been reworked and sewn together, into a piece 16 x 6, I am thinking about what next.  I have quite a lot of plain denim squares laid out, and a few more 9 patches.  Some of the plain bits might get circles, or Xs; I might add some more strips of shirt bits or some squares cut from the same shirts.  Who knows?

Finally a reminder for anyone who's making it up as they go along this month: the AHIQ link up goes live tomorrow.  Do join in and show us what you've been doing.

As well as Patchwork Times, I'm linking up today with Love, Laugh, Quilt for Monday Making.


  1. So awesome! Love the tiny bits of warm colours added here and there!

  2. Lovely - the addition of the 9 patches and x blocks has really changed how this looks!

  3. More nine patches, I thought you'd still be sick to death of them, hahaha!! Glad you're not though, they look really good with the circles - and as well as the Xs I love the little flashes of orange. How big are you planning to go with this one?

  4. I am still very drawn to the brighter and lighter blues. This is really coming alive!

  5. I hate unpicking too! Really hate it so most things that need unpicking linger. Maybe it was worth it. I like your latest additions.

  6. I really liked the circles at first, but now that you're starting to add in the other bits, I see that they do give it a more dynamic quality. As always, I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.


Feel free to comment away! I read everything and welcome all feedback. I seem to be getting a lot of comments from no-reply bloggers at the moment - if you don't get a response, that will be why.
