|Trapped Ripples FMQ Filler|
While stitching in the ditch, I looked over at my Leah Day Free Motions Filler Sampler quilt for inspiration--originally in search of a variation on the pebbling design--perhaps some spirals to continue the Hugs & Kisses title. But then I saw the Trapped Ripples block and thought that would make for a great filler around the crosses. Each of the blocks had 4 corner quadrants that were easily subdivided into 2 triangle units which were then filled with echoing arcs forming Trapped Ripples. Not only did this filler design provide some great texture, it was super fast to complete all 8 rows (another big plus--ha ha!!)

While working through each of the 8 rows, I mulled over some clever quilt titles. Since there weren't any circles, Hugs & Kisses no longer applied. Brainstorm sessions using the X shape came up empty. By changing my mindset from perceiving the cross as an Plus Sign, instead of an X quickly yielded the Texture Plus title--which captures all the fabulous texture created by the Trapped Ripple filler design...perfect!
