I used a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman – Modern Crosses from her Craftsy class “Inspired Modern Quilts”. I used that pattern before and loved it. It’s super fast to put together, but the different size squares really add some fun elements to the quilt.
I was able to use scraps for all the pink prints and found the dotty background fabric in my stash. I made the binding from the same background fabric because none of the pink fabrics in my stash really spoke to me for this quilt. I think the light binding really allows the fun pink prints to shine.
For the quilting, I went with my usual big meander with Aurifil 50 wt in Dove (#2600).
My son was very pleased with this quilt when he picked it up and said his friend would be really, really happy – which is great!

This will likely be my last post before Christmas so to all of you – Happy Holidays! I hope you get to spend time with those you love, eating good food and surrounded by things that make you happy! I wish you some selfish sewing time too after the craziness that is holiday sewing!!
