With the ice and snow expected to come through Atlanta this week (we haven’t actually seen much yet but it is supposed to get worse this afternoon and tonight), I got yesterday off work for another sewing day. With all that dedicated sewing time (while watching the Olympics of course), I was able to finish the top of my cross / plus quilt for my brother. I even managed to sneak in a photoshoot despite the dreary weather!
I love the colors in this quilt! The reds and blues are so bright and fun!
I used glue basting to help ensure all of the seams lined up properly. I must say that glue basting might be my new favorite sewing / quilting trick! It is so much easier than pinning and works really well.
I was a little worried that with only 3 colors the crosses / pluses wouldn’t stand out and be obvious enough but I love how it turned out!
Now I just need this dreary weather to dry up so that I can get this top spray basting and get started on the quilting!
