    Cross and Crown

    We haven't had time to work on many quilts lately, but we did finish one recently and gifted it. This one is for our Assistant Pastor. We thought the Cross and Crown pattern was perfect for a preacher. We also added symbolism with the fabric selection.

    Thanks for looking,

    Darren

    Very pretty! I love the outer border fabric.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I absolutely love your machine binding. It's so perfect! So exact! I want to be able to do that. And WOW on the quilt. I love your blocks. They are gorgeous. They look pretty straight forward.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. We used a store-bought binding on the last quilt we worked on and it was a triple fold wide binding. We really liked it and decided we wanted to try to make our own. This was our first attempt and I must say we were very pleased with how it turned out. We will definitely do that again - we both like the wide binding. It was only a bit more trouble than a regular double fold binding, but so worth it.
