This is the name my customer gave her quilt that I just quilted for her.
For reference sake, I am calling it Crosses in Squares.
I was having trouble coming up with a quilt design on this one so put it out there amongst my long arm friends and it was suggested I do feathers and some ruler work in the crosses. Thanks Shirley. Sometimes when the fabrics are so busy, it is hard to decide what to do with a quilt and then you resort to a panto, but in this case, I don't think the feathers are lost in the design.
So, here are some close-ups of the quilting.
Before I had even seen the backing for this quilt, I had decided on using a melon (orange-y) colored thread for the quilting. (So Fine top and bottom). Orange just seemed to shine through on this quilt.
Then I saw the backing.
I guess orange was the right choice.
Sure hoping my customer likes this one.
