This week has been busy on my Patchwork of the Crosses. It is just so addictive.
I have been working on getting more of my Crosses blocks surrounded
in the background fabric.
This a new block that I finished last night - I have been trying to get away from the
centre of the Crosses block always being the focal point.
I now have five joined up for the first row which will probably need to be seven if I am
doing the full size quilt - it depends where it all comes to the bed.
I have just been and laid it out on our double bed and it comes to the edges and
very slightly over the edge so maybe that is enough as it looks quit nice as a topper on our textured cream bedspread that goes to the floor.
So I think make it five across and get a few more rows made and joined on and
then review the decision. As you can see from the photo only one row is actually
joined - the other blocks are just placed in position.
Yes she always has to have pride of place!!
And yes the bedspread needs washing often thanks to her!!
Things will have to change when Patchwork of the Crosses gets into pride of place!
