anyone made a quilt using this ruler? I would like to see your pictures.
I have purchased a ruler, but haven't used it yet. Which one?
Patricia Pepe(she designed the ruler) has visited our guild a number of times, and the members' frequent "show & tell" of the "X" block quilts egged me on...not that I needed much of an excuse.
Have you seen these quilts on her sight?
I have a pic of one in my 2012 webshots album.
It was fun to do, but you have to get over trying to make seams match from block to block.
Wildcatmom thanks for including that link. Beautiful sampling of quilts & so worth checking out. I especially loved the ending. So cute.

I think this little wall hanging was made with one of those rulers.
Summers are just this side of hell, but you don't have to shovel sunshine...

It is a very easy to use ruler. Although both rulers are handy, I find you can get more designs with the xblock ruler than the twister (the blocks do not tessellate with the xblock). The Xblock and twister are the same in that you use it more as a template to trim something that you have already pieced. Rather than piecing a whole top and then cutting, you piece blocks with simple squares or strips and then use the Xblock ruler to trim the blocks. There are three different sets of trimming lines on each ruler so you get different looks depending on the color arrangement, size and number of pieces you use to make your block. The ruler is turned over for mirror immages so it multiples your possibilities dramatically! It wastes lots of fabric, but the "waste" can be used for borders.This message has been edited.

Another black and white- 9 pieces per square where the one above was just 3.
I took a class on the x block this spring and made a Mo's Basket weave. I posted it on Holl's post Sew N Tell ofon 5/11/2012- found on page 6. It was fun to do and not too difficult if you follow the directions. Sue
Sue, I checked my computer and the photos of the finished x-block table topper and lap aren't on it. I think they are still on the camera. I'll try to get them posted tomorrow. It is late and I don't want to wake DH or dog.
Thanks for the pics. When I get moved into my new sewing space this will be on my project list. Seems like it would go fast since you are using strip sets.
