X-Files Quilt & Stitch Along: I Want To Believe WEEK NINE + Design Invitational

#xfilesquilt - I Want To Believe on fandominstitches.com

Welcome to the NINTH week of our #XFILESQUILT Event.

Just a few more weeks until our event will be complete!

PLEASE KEEP SCROLLING FOR THE #XFILESQUILT DESIGN INVITATIONAL!

I Want To Believe: An X-Files Quilt & Stitch Along is designed and presented by me, Jennifer Ofenstein (also find me on sewhooked.com).


And now... BLOCK NINE!

13” Finished (13 1/2” unfinished)
Hand Embroidered on background fabric.

Possibly my favorite non-Harry Potter trio, Langly, Frohike and Byers, aka The Lone Gunmen, were a brainy (if paranoid) force to be reckoned with.


7" (7 1/2" unfinished)
paper pieced

REMINDER:  If you are participating in I Want To Believe: An X-Files Quilt & Stitch Along, then you are cordially invited to make a Signature Block for this very special quilt. It is not required, but it is much appreciated! ♥  Patterns are due December 1, 2016. More details in the pattern document.
