Plum and June link up party....

Plum and June is having a lets get acquainted link up party.

My plus and "X" quilt top is done.  

The weather has been very cold here but the sun was out 
and so I snuck outside to get a photo.

Thank you for stopping by,

We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us 
to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.

Cross and "X" blocks....

Life has been a little crazy around here! 
One of my twins, Sidney, plays on a Premier Indoor Field Hockey League, so Sundays we end up traveling. Last Sunday was an all day tournament which they ended up taking first place!

My oldest daughter, left her husband. I've very thankful to the women who volunteer at the Domestic Violence Hotline and Shelters, they saved her life! She has a long road ahead of her so please keep her in your thoughts.

So in between all of that I have been working on some Cross and "X" blocks.
Is this the correct name?? I had pulled these fabrics awhile ago and have been playing around with different blocks but wasn't liking the outcome but I love these blocks.

 I still have lots of blocks to make and not sure which layout I'll end up with. 
Which one do you like?

Layout #1

Layout #2

Wells that's all folks,

Keep looking up...
that's the secret to life...
