and a miracle occurred


This is done...no name as yet. I still have lots of scraps left from Jennifer. Some will go on the back and some will show up in other blocks. It was loads of fun and miracle of miracle the triangle blocks matched up in the upper corners without any fuss.
Back to curves....cut a bunch of 8 1/2 inch squares for some purpose which is now forgotten. They look like a sea of kelp to me. Hmmm...don't know where this is going.
Some more simple play--Double Cross. I had a stack of fabrics I liked together and wanted to make something simple. Of course if I wanted them to look like crosses then I had to mark the top and sides with pins. (this was discovered after one block looked like drunken crosses. The blocks will be tipsy, but I can't decide between solid gray or light green. Any suggestions???

I love the un-named quilt too! I love the yellow "crosses" in the center of those blocks. I am going to have to try that!

Un-named quilt is great! I vote grey (if you go with sashing) though un-sashed would look great too...or how about crazy, pieced sashing?!!
