Cross Quilt

It's done!   And might I say, it was fun.   Another original design by moi.   I used Amanda's funky fabric Sugar and Spice for this little quilt.

The border took the longest, 40 minutes for each side.   Yep, that is over 2 1/2 hours just on that little cross border.   But I really think it adds to the quilt, don't you?





I stippled in the large cross blocks, leaving the white cross free of quilting so it kind of pops out.  It is so hard to see white thread on white fabric.   The sashing is done in lines and where they intersect, it looks a bit like a checkerboard.
