Patricia Pepe - Quilt Queen Designs - BasiX - XBlocks - Quilting TemplateHi Moda fans! My name is Patricia Pepe of Quilt Queen Designs. I am the creator of X-Blocks and BasiX templates, books and patterns. Happy Friday the 13th! I consider this the luckiest day of the year so I'm particularly X-cited to show you my new BasiX and Baby BasiX templates! 

Now you can create quilts faster and easier with BasiX and the itsy-bitsy Baby BasiX. These nifty new templates have the same magic as the original X-Blocks, but were created for pre-cut strips such as Moda's JellyRolls and Honeybuns. They work great with Charm Packs and Layer Cakes too!

I believe quilting should be fun. BasiX makes it fun and easy since the measuring and cutting have been done for you! Isn't it time to get back to the BasiX and have some fun?

The magical X-Blocks and the new BasiX templates are to be used with your rotary cutter on your pre-sewn blocks or strips for quick and fun quiltmaking. The possibilities are endless!

The BasiX template comes with it's own carrying case, full instructions, 2 bonus patterns and extra hints and tips.
