{ sewing these crosses made me a little cross }

    Newer Older

    progress on the winter cross quilt top! all those crosses have been sewn together finally! since the squares for the cross blocks were so small, there was a lot of seam shrinkage, so the quilt top isn't all that large. i'm planning to add some borders to it to make it bed-sized, i just haven't decided yet on what kind of borders + what fabrics to use, since i am pretty much out of these fabrics now--and i *rarely* buy the same fabric twice.

    really, really happy with the top so far, though! and even REALLIER happy that all those crosses are finally crossed!

      it's lovely. i know how hard it is to lay out a cross quilt, especially one with this many squares.
