Free Pattern Day: Plus and 'X' quilts

Among the simplest of all quilt blocks are those that make 'plus' and 'X' designs. The strips can be made either skinny or wide, and the symbols can be centered, off-center, or tessellating.  The X's are sometimes combined with circles to make "hugs & kisses" quilts.  Here are the free patterns!  Note: This post was updated on April 18, 2016.

  2. What a great variety of quilts these shapes can make! Thanks for sharing all these stunners.

    I've had a cross quilt on my (long) mental to-do list for a while. Eventually...

  3. I wonder why those + and X blocks are called "Japanese". I am still putting those 240+ blocks together but have never seen a finished quilt in that design.
