Cross it off

Another quilt finish!  I’ve been super busy basting and quilting old work-in-progress quilt tops and it feels great to get them all done.  This one is the Wonky Cross quilt that I started early last year.  My previous progress is documented here.  It’s for an old high-school friend of mine that is currently serving in the Coast Guard.  He just recently got shipped out and this quilt will be waiting for me to send to him when he returns. Lots and  lots of improv happening here.  From the crosses to the borders.  I had no plan other than the color palette and the crosses but I love how it turned out!  I quilted it with a radiating star type design from the top corner of the crosses section out to the edges.  The borders contain straight lines in an L shape.

I found the perfect binding fabric in a print from the Pandalicious line which I mixed with one of the grey prints.  It framed it beautifully!  Now it gets to spend some time hanging out in my sewing room for me to enjoy until he gets back to the states.

Stash Enhancement:

Pink Castle Fabrics was having a special on Asterisk fabric by Lizzy House.  I had to have it before it goes away.  I just love a great blender fabric!There are some metallics in there as well which I seriously love!

I’m currently working on quilting yet another work-in-progress which I hope to have done next weekend.

Happy Sewing!
