Cross Quilt

 






























This cross quilt was started last fall, with a specific person in mind.  I wanted something a bit more muted and simple in design than what I generally make.  Along the way, I decided to make this person something else instead, but I finished the quilt anyways.  

Now that I see it in photos, I realize that it is still fairly busy and has a lot going on.  Guess it's just really hard for me to make a quilt without adding texture and print and color!  I really do like it though, it's nice to do a different color palette for a change.  

That one green print with the little stitches on it?  Those stitches are part of the fabric, I didn't put them there.  Just thought I'd mention it as I don't deserve the credit for those sweet little stitches!  Fabrics like this with added interest and texture are always a win to have in your stash.

It finished up at approximately 54" square.  I'm not usually a fan of square quilts, so not sure how this happened?  I think I got lazy and didn't feel like making more blocks to make it a rectangle.... anyways, here it is and I like it!

  2. I like the liveliness of your design. While it has a modern feel, it still gives a nod to the traditional, which I love, too. Lovely quilt!

  3. I love this! Your fabric choices always teach me something! And the straight line quilting gives me hope to save $$ using longarm quilters. Please share your stitch length for your quilting. I'm guessing 2.5 or 3. Thank you!
