Double cross




This is the result of making double crosses. I have included the first ones made of just two fabrics (hmmm, a future project), the bottom of the three improv blocks was made using free-pieced fabric, which I thought was too busy to show off the crosses and the top two with free-pieced strings. It was definitely fun and, of course, went way beyond 15 min as it grew. I don't think I am thru with crosses and want to play some more with them.

Today it is supposed to snow most of the day...perfect for staying in my quilting room. Bonnie

What a fun project! Tshe blocks with more colour are definitely more interesting, though the top blocks would make a great bigger quilt! With wonky sashing?

Oh, do I love these! Never thought about incorporating little creations into a bigger block like you have - a bigger, liberated block, that is. Very cool!

I also think its a great ideia to do this technique on the free pieced fabric...

I've been a fan of these ocks from the get go... I wonder how the top ones work with the second photo... Hmmm, I may take 15 minutes just to ponder that! Hehe... Enjoy your snow day!!

Very cool...with the big dots at the bottom it almost looks like the big cat cages at the circus...
