X Block Fun

I used my new X block ruler for the first time this weekend and made the following blocks. These blocks were made with one strip of 3 1/4 cut of each fabric....I then sewed the strips together with the fish in the middle and then used the X block ruler to cut the 5 blocks you see below. I plan on working on this project this weekend.....more to follow. At my Tuesday night sewing group Dianah also experimented with her X block ruler and made the following small quilt. This was made using 1/3 of a yard of fabric.
Yesterday Teresa sent me the picture below that she made with the ruler. She made 9 patch blocks and then re cut them using the X block ruler and made this small quilt. Teresa bought the smaller 3 inch ruler. She sewed buttons on her quilt.....looks cool.

All the quilts look so different! I can't wait to see your quilt finished. I will have my 9 patch quilt top at the meeting. I need to get the pieced border finished.
