XXXs and OOOs so far!

Hello Dear Friends,
So I've been sewing and sewing and what started out as one ox...

Then progressed to lots of oxen...

Is now looking like this.  I'm wondering what you think.  Should I make another O or X for the corners, or should I use a plain navy blue square. I'm leaning towards continuing the Os and Xs. What do you think? 
Here's the disclaimer: All are still on their paper foundations, and not yet sewed together - that's why some look so far away from the next block, and some aren't straight. It's that late night pinning onto the design wall. (Center os and xes are all red - the dark ones too, just a darker red.)

(Edit: Come over and see me over on a linky party at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and A Creative Princess - you might have to page down to the party... I don't know how to get there otherwise... still new at this techno stuff.)

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
Tune in next time to see the flowers blooming in my yard this week.


  1. Hope this comment takes.
    I kinda think maybe ... more letters, then I think Dark blue squares would look VERY nice. Will you have a border? If so, what color will the border(s) be?

  2. I think it looks great and especially love the blue you added! I would add another blue row and call it beautiful!!! I'm sure whatever you do, it will be special! Thank you so much for linking up!

  3. The blocks look really good. I think I would continue the X or O rather than a solid block.

  4. How about hearts in the corners? Kind of fits in with the hugs and kisses! They could either be straight up and down, or with the bottom point of the heart in the inner corner of the block, set on an angle within the block.

    By the way, whoop whoop!!

  5. Very nice. I like Sarah's suggestion of hearts in the corners. A thin red sashing border and then a wider border of blue/red print would make a lovely finish.

  6. Whoop Whoop!
    I like Sarah's corner hearts too. If not, then I would pick more Xs & Os.

    Looks great :D

  7. I love that you have the red in the center and blue for the border. Very nice. I would put something in the corners, either X/O or a heart would be cute.

  8. What a lot of hard work you have put in to your Hugs and Kisses quilt. It's looking so good even without the disclaimer.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love the feedback, and getting to know you.
