My Patchwork of the Crosses designed by Lucy Boston is finished! I had to force myself to finish this project. I did NOT hand quilt, I actually machine quilted the little quilt with my sewing machine. She's not perfect but she is finished!!
I'm not a table runner sort of person, for now this is hanging on the wall. It is pretty and I do like it now that it's finished, but I never want to make another one.
My original plan was to quilt around the flowers which is the way the white connecting fabric was quilted.
But I didn't like the way that fabric puckered so all the rest of the blocks are stitch inside each elongated hexie. The addition stitching made the hexies lie flat which is what I wanted.
Colored thread was used for the quilting. You don't really see it on the front but the back of the quilt looks very interesting.
For the outside border, I quilted a Baptist Fan design. This little quilt measures 29" by 40-1/2".
