X-Files Quilt & Stitch Along: I Want To Believe WEEK TWELVE

#xfilesquilt - I Want To Believe on fandominstitches.com

Welcome to WEEK 12 of our #XFILESQUILT Event. 

This is it! You now have every pattern you need to finish the #XFILESQUILT as designed.

Find these patterns in


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

 Super HUGE GIANT THANKS to Julia Murtha, 
my best friend and pattern tester for this event. 
Check out her blog here and leave her some love!


And now... THE FINAL BLOCK!


13” X 20” (13 1/2” X 20 1/2”) paper pieced
fabric colors in pattern coordinate to chart in Quilt Layout (below)

This was, without a doubt, my favorite part of this project to design and piece. It was the first piece of this quilty puzzle and started the entire idea!

Make one for your quilt and one for your wall. And maybe one for your friends. ;)

Just don't throw pencils at it, okay?

50 1/2" x 62 1/2" as shown
Optional: add additional borders for a larger quilt.

Well, my friends, here we are!

This is the completed X-Files quilt top, with our 9 embroidered and 3 paper pieced blocks. As you can see, there is room for the Bonus blocks, if desired. 


If you have a design wall or blank space to arrange your top, this is the time to use it! The layout looks complex, but if you take it one section at a time, you'll find it comes together in no time.

In progress... follow the chart, take your time and you'll be fine!
