GenX Recipe and Quilt Show! Quilt Edition

Gen X Quilters Summer Fair
I already posted my recipe for the Fair over at gen X quilters so I wanted to get my quilt posted as well.  This was my most recent finish and also the first quilt that I designed by myself.
I call this one X Marks the Spot. Here are the specifics on this quilt.

Quilting: straight stitch blocks around each square in graduated sizes, X quilted in center of each square, blocks quilted in extra spaces, outline quilting done on borders, by me on home machine
Size: Lap Quilt, 44"x 45"
Let's just say there are a heck of a lot of HST's in this quilt!

and a close-up.
Hope you like it! I hope to one day have a pattern whenever I can sit down and make myself write it up!

Very nice! I especially love interesting backs. I love how some quilters are making quilts that are almost reversible, like yours.

The patterns on the front and back are so neat! I like how they make me think of broken mirrors (in a nice way). :)
