There are lots of versions of X and O quilts out there on the web to oogle at, but I think I’ve found the simplest tutorial so you make your own X and O quilt block. What’s even better than being simple, is that it’s such a great video; fun, fast and comprehensive.
The block that Teresa Downunder shows us in this tutorial is actually called Road to Tennessee. But it can be arranged in so many different ways! I like it best as the X and O quilt block, so that’s why I’m sticking to calling it that! Of course, if you played around with colour combinations and darks and lights, you might have a quilt that looked completely different again. The possibilities are endless!
PS – save the little triangles you trim off the blocks, sew them together on the long side, open them out and you have a cute little half-square triangles to use for something else. Coasters perhaps?
