    Another Cross quilt

    A young girl saw my Mom's quilt and asked for me to make her one. It is not as special as my Mom's is to me. I quilted it with Roses to go with the roses on the fabric. Much like on my Mother's. I hope you enjoy this quilt. Sorry I just noticed I had not steamed the quilt by the binding. It does look better with the binding steamed. My DH does not always hold them up to straight either. LOL

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    That is beautiful! This quilt may not have the signifigance your mother's had to you, but, I guarantee it will be so special to the young girl you made it for and will be a life long treasure for her. Kudos!

    I redesigned a quilt pattern for sports to make this quilt. I used 6 1/2" blocks for this. Not hard just look at the quilt to see the layout.

    Oh that is lovely!! just reminded me that i have two different fabrics with crosses on them. I meant to make a quilt of crosses of all sizes once. I must do that after seeing yours.
