X and Plus to Empty the Scrap Basket and a WINNER!

Good morning! I don't know about you but I have tons of scrap bags and baskets that are full to overflowing. When working on a quilt top and my scrap basket by the sewing machine falls over and scraps go everywhere. I just grab them up and make blocks. These are X and Plus blocksTaDah!
I don't even pay attention to matching colors. It's such an easy, fun block to do. It's so busy that these blocks will probably need a dark sashing though. I've seen this block done by tons of people and some are selling the pattern. There are also free patterns if you google them. 

Now for the winner of the Cozy Afternoon Giveaway by Jacquelynne Steves! The winner is:

Have a great day! XO and Cheery wave from Bev

I just spotted my X + blocks and I need to make just a few more to have enough to put together. LOVE them! But I need to finish up a few QOV's so trying not to get distracted by other things! :-(
