Criss-Crossed is the name of my latest finish. It was made with an assortment of pink, plum, and golden fabrics. Many prints are Denyse Schmidt of course! Others are Lori Holt Daisy Cottage, some Thomas Knauer, Joel Dewberry, and even fabric designed by fellow DCMQG member Jessie Aller for In the Beginning. All of the fabrics including the backing and two shades of gray are from my stash!!! How often can a quilter say that? The binding was purchased online and luckily it coordinates beautifully.
The back is an Anna Maria Horner roses print from her Innocent Crush collection and a gray, yellow, ivory Midwest Modern print by Amy Butler. Pieced backs are definitely my favorite!
This is the first quilt I quilted on the new long arm. It was an experience. I had some issues with the edges of the quilt and a few times I had to unpick a lot of quilting. But overall I was pretty pleased with how the final quilt turned out despite all the extra handling during quilting. A final trim and the binding hid any imperfections.
Normally I don’t wash any quilts before gifting, but this time I ran the quilt through the washer and dryer just to make sure everything held together, which it did!
Who can resist a big-eyed bunny? Not my daughter!
