wonky crosses {finished}

Phew, all finished, and on time, too. As I mentioned before, I made this quilt as part of the challenge at our Naperville Modern Quilt Guild meeting. The challenge was to make something quilted using orange, aqua, and grey colors.

Even though I like all these colors, I just could not decide on what to make. I wanted something simple and quick, and at the last minute I decided to go with these wonky crosses.

I really like how they turned out. I'm also glad I used sashing to frame all the blocks. I was not planning on doing that at first but when I put all the blocks next to each other they all seemed so chaotic and jumbled. I think this Kona Snow (my new favorite white) sashing brought just the right amount of order.

I quilted this little guy stitching straight lines about 1" apart. I was really tempted to do much denser quilting, maybe every 1/2", but decided against it since this is a baby quilt. I feel that quilting that's too dense makes for very stiff, and not very snuggly quilts.

And, to add to the snuggle factor, I used flannel for the backing. Oh, it feels heavenly.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Svetlana
