Design Wall Monday - Scrappy X and +

Linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.   

Just reading through blogs recently and I saw a scrappy block that I have been wanting to try.  It is taken from a design of Japanese X and + by Setsuko Inagawa.  There is a tutorial created for this block by Badskirt.  I had some time and thought I would create some blocks to see if I would like it. 

The tutorial is easy to follow and the blocks work up fast.  I did have an issue with choosing fabrics.  There are seven fabrics per block and I wonder what the trick is with selecting fabrics so the block doesn't look too choppy.  I made 4 of these blocks and I am sure that I will make more once I can determine a color scheme.
