And.........I'm dead tired !
I've been sewing since 9 a.m.
But....I finished my x and plus quilt top.......except maybe for a border to make it a bit bigger. BUT THE MAJOR PIECING IS DONE !
I made 26 blocks many months ago, and couldn't decide on whether to make it the usual way .......
or sash it to gain some size.
The only fabric that I had enough of for one-color sashing was a bright lime green.
I wasn't happy with either option, so I put the blocks away, but not so far that I didn't run across them every time I tried to start something else.
Looking at them yesterday, I noticed that I had a LOT of extra 2 1/2 inch squares and 2 x 6 rectangles. Playing around with the blocks, I realized that I could make sashing from the extra pieces instead. This way ......
.......I have plusses EVERYWHERE !
X's...not so obvious,........but they're there.
I like it this way......from a distance. And, yes, I added the cross on purpose.)
Up close, it's just bright CHAOS ! I think I have finally gotten over my obsession with bright quilts.
More and more I'm craving a softly colored, quiet quilt. That will take SOME shopping, as you won't find THAT in my current stash.
