On the Design Wall: Modern Crosses

Progess, Quilt for Japan

Lest you think all I do is buy fabric and give it away...  I want you to see that I've been sewing too.  : )  I've been adding more modern crosses to my design wall.  They're all hanging out getting to know each other.  With only two colors, I'm trying to decide if the red and aqua should alternate.  Maybe a more random mix would look better.  What do you think?

This design is from the book, Modern Log Cabin Quilting by Susan Beal.  It is such a great pattern.  I can't wait to make another one!!  This version on flickr is really beautiful and so is this one.  Mine started with a bundle of Sugar and Spice by the Quilted Fish, which happens to come with some great stripes.  Striped binding anyone?  Oh yeah!  About fifteen more blocks to go...

If you are here for the giveaway, welcome!  Click on this link to enter.  Hurry though, this is the last day to enter.  I will be choosing the winner tonight.  **Edited to add: I originally said the giveaway would go until May 5th.  Sorry about that.  Sheesh, you still have plenty of time to enter! **  I'm so excited.  Good luck everyone!!!!!

I've grown to love it when my DH goes out of town for business.  He drives through Paso Robles, Ca and stops at Birch Fabrics (aka, Fabricworm) and buys fabric!  Before you get too jealous he didn't buy these for me.  He said something about the forum... and buttons...

Happy Sunday peeps.  I hope you're having a good one!!  : )
