I am super happy about this weirdly mild weather - my numerous friends with ice rinks filling their back yards, no so much. So, I can't shout my excitement too loudly.
Modern Quilt Blogger dream weather is what I will label this weirdness. I have a boat load of finished quilts that are screaming for their photo shoots - and lucky enough to have my personal
Greek Cross in Red, Blue, and Goldfish
This is one of my mom's favorites, and I agree. I pulled a bunch of fabulous reds, gathered my clear blues, and tossed in a few of Heather Ross's adorable swimming fish.
The Greek Cross is a fun one to make - it goes together so nicely, then the fun quartered squares show up in between when you line them all up.
Most of my quilts have a pieced back of some sort, but this time I went with a solid piece of pretty, blue linen. Combined with the stipple it gives the quilt a wonderful drape. I also made friends with my spray basting issues and things went perfectly with the wiggly linen here.
I had a comment left when I was lamenting the stiff issues of spray basting and was given the image of spraying a light coat of Pam on a pan. I also noticed that it seems to kind of set up after just a bit. So if you stick down your quilt top and wait just a bit, it's stickier then peeling it up right away.
Thank you to the sunny weather, I have listed this quilt in my etsy shop.
