Well, I did it! At the beginning of February, for A Lovely Year of Finishes, I said I wanted to finish Modern Crosses this month and I had to stay up a little late this week, but it's done.
And I LOVE it! :-)
There are numerous different fabrics in there, as well as some Kona Snow. The blocks finish in three different sizes: 3", 6" and 12". The quilt was designed by Elizabeth Hartman who blogs at Oh, Fransson! Elizabeth also teaches this particular quilt pattern in her Craftsy class (which I really, really like!).
The backing is a more traditional print which I have had in my stash forever. I also used a few of the leftover blocks to piece the label right into the backing.
The binding is a really cool chevron print.
I quilted spirals in different sizes. I like the curves of the spirals against the sharp lines and angles of the piecing. And the quilting was really quick and easy with my FMQ foot. They are not perfect, but they are good enough and they give the quilt a really nice texture.
Modern Crosses measures 60" square and will most likely live on the living room couch, just waiting for someone to snuggle with while watching TV.
Have a great weekend!
