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 here, here 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.
Modern Fat Cross
The finished size is 66 inches x 76 inches
For the crosses, I used different prints from Denyse Schmidt, Anna Maria Horner and Kaffe Fassett.
And a mix of low volume fabrics for the background.
