Blogger's Quilt Festival - Second Entry - Modern Fat Cross

For my second entry at the Blogger's Quilt Festival, I am entering my Modern Fat Cross Quilt into the Large Quilts Category

It's my first time participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival and if it was easy to decide for my first entry, it wasn't that much for my second entry. So after some thought ...I decided on this one.

The fabric I used for the crosses are mostly from my favorite designers; Anna Maria Horner, Denyse Schmidt and Kaffe Fassett (spots and shot cotton). This fabric pull represents well my preferences for fabrics and colors. 

If you are interested to see the progression of this quilt, you can read about it herehere and here.

I chose Deb's Feathers as for quilting design, my ultimate favorite at the moment. The quilting was done with a light variegated thread.

And a mix of low volume fabrics for the background.
