I LOVE basketball, college basketball especially.

The season has begun. Our town is all x-cited about several freshman who just started playing for KU. Xavier Henry had a great first game, scoring 27 points in a debut record. When he dunks, otherwise calm women in our age group text each other things like "Xavier is a stud!" and "Wait, don't you mean stud muffin!" We are thrilled.

I noticed some inventive fans in the student section were holding their arms above their heads, crossed like an X........

which made me think of this quilt picture a friend sent last week. More X's! This quilt is in the International Quilt Study Center collection in Lincoln, Nebraska. Click on the words underlined above to read more about it.

  1. Hello...
    Your x-cellent quilt photo reminded me of the cover of one of my favorites. On the cover of Bets Ramsey's OLD AND NEW QUILT PATTERNS IN THE SOUTHERN TRADITION (ISBN; 0-934395-63-2) is a cross string quilt. I'm forever checking it out from the Poway county library.
    Started on the yoga mat (orange plaid/purple) for my sis...then got side-tracked by a yo-yo and monkey wrench quilt requests from my 2 daughters. Oh, and a homespun plaid brick for my husband...thanks for the pictures.
