Patchwork of the Crosses Finish

My Patchwork of the Crosses Quilt top is finished.
What a great feeling. 
It has been all consuming, but I love it and the process.

It has taken about one year to complete!
Now it is off to Helen to machine quilt.

I have finished the edges like this - you can just see my final sewing 
line drawn on. I will trim it back once it has been quilted.

Then bind it with the same cream as the background fabric.

Now off to finish a couple of other projects before starting a 
new taupe Block of the Month.


  1. Simply gorgeous! I have been checking out some of your blocks as you make them and they are beautiful. Do you have any advice for someone starting out on their first block (me)? How do you pick your fabrics for the fussy cutting? This seems to be the hardest part for me when I look at fabric, I am not quite sure what to pick.

  2. I am so impressed with your quilt. It is beautiful. I have started a few blocks and need to be on a mission with it more I think. Shirley
