Crosses II - Top Done!

Well this is the layout I finally picked.  You might think - how hard could it possibly be to put together these little cross blocks.  Well, let me tell ya, plenty hard.  Still after about 20 different layouts - I settled on this one and sewed it up before I could change my mind.  Once I was done - I really liked it.  So guess they're right when they say "Nothin' that's worth having comes easy "  (grin)

I was going to layer these up and start quilting on them, but I think I need a small break.  There is a local challenge that is due the end of August and I've learned that  my work is better when I'm not rushing the process.  I better get going on that!

I love it! You should feel really good about this. Very complex and what I like it that I really do get a different perspective of the cross and it's meaning to me in this quilt.

You know that's what abstract work is all about - letting the viewer interpret some of the meaning from the piece. With figurative its always spelled out for you!

Love it! There comes a time in every abstract quilt when you just have to say it's done and sew it together. You timed this one just right.

Guess you picked the right time to finish it - because it looks great! Compared to the last setting on your design wall, I like the dark/light distribution much better.
