I did it! I finished my 12th quilt this year and therefore have officially completed my personal quilting challenge for 2011. To be honest, I did not think I would be able to make it, with all the move and changes that have been going on here in the last few month. I mean, until August I was like five quilts behind! But it turns out that
a) having your own studio
b) your children going to preschool every morning
is a total boost for your creativity. Well, mine at least.
So here it is:
I had wanted to make a cross quilt as soon as I saw this one. And since I needed a gift for my mother-in-law's birthday anyway, this all worked out perfectly well. The fabric came out of my stash, it's the same that I used for my postage stamps quilt back in May. The binding is done in a solid brown, it is Kona, but I really don't remember which shade exactly (note to myself: get this color card already to keep track of my fabric!).
I quilted it by outlining the crosses. I think simple lines would have been nice as well, or some lattice pattern. We will be off to northern Germany tomorrow by train for the big birthday party (my three year old is already so excited, he loves trains!). Thankfully, we won't have to come empty handed...
