The cross

Today being Good Friday, my family and I celebrated the death of Jesus.  So tonight I thought it fitting to work on the cross quilt.

The fabric was given to me by an aunt, so I thought I'd turn it into a quilt for her.  She has decorated her house with many items to remind us of God's love, so the symbol is fitting.  (It is also easy enough to put into a quilt based on value.)

After looking at the B&W version I realized the right side had a few more light squares than the left.  Besides that it is good enough...not perfect, but there is contrast as needed.

I currently have all the pairs put together and am starting four-squares tonight.  As long as the cat doesn't mess it up too much...she seems to think that fabric on the floor is for her and only for her.


  1. This looks fabulous! Happy Good Friday!

    1. Beautiful-the color of kings-purple. Can't wait until

  2. Beautiful quilt. I love the "glow" around the cross.

  3. What a beautiful way of using the fabrics your Aunt gave you.


Thanks for commenting...I love seeing what you have to say!
