X-ing off my list

I've had a pile of the new Lotta fabrics on my work table for a couple of weeks and started slowly adding more fabric to it without a real plan. Until I came across this tutorial. Fun quilt - why not use the fabrics I already had piled up? I took advantage of  the bright Saturday morning light and got to work rifling through my stash today adding more blues and greens. I think I have come up with something to work with here. I would like to use the text fabric as a feature, and so far this first version with the dark grid and text behind the crosses is my favourite.

 Or maybe lines of text crisscrossing the quilt? I'll have to make a few trial blocks I think...
And then I really must get to work on sorting my stash or coming up with a new storage solution...
But, really, nothing of this will happen this week - I have a big day coming up on Wednesday - half a century, oh my!
