The 2014 FAL Q-2 deadline is approaching very quickly (1 day left)... So here is another finish...
Originally named "Fat Cross" but has been renamed "Modern Fat Cross"
An array of colorful crosses against a low volume background.
I didn't find a pattern I liked and ended up making my own, I wanted the crosses to dominate and not the background. Every piece were chosen and placed one at a time using the design wall.
It was mistakenly quilted with the same variegated thread used with "Fancy That" instead of the ivory thread requested...However, I think it turned out great, I couldn't love it more so, let's call this one a very happy accident.:)
This one will be gifted to a special someone and, will be heading to a new home sometime next week where, I am sure it will be love an cherished.:)
I feel a bit sad to see this one go, but I am glad that I have plenty of pictures to look at...
