Modern Crosses Quilt Top

After sewing my thirty-five log cabin blocks together, I was happy to discover that my finished Modern Crosses Quilt top measures 45″ x 57″ which I think is a reasonable size for a lap quilt.Modern crosses 1.jpg I made this quilt using a pattern from the wonderful book Modern Log Cabin Quilting but I made a few modifications which you can read about in my previous post.

I did play with a few alternative layout ideas

before deciding that I liked the staggered arrangement best with the colours fading from left to right.Modern crosses 1I’m still contemplating how to quilt this one but already have it basted and ready for when I decide…

Modern crosses 3This week, I also finished quilting my Colour Happy Quilt and have started hand stitching down the binding. I’m hoping to be able to show you the finished quilt very soon.


May Is For Makers | LRstitched.comFor Week 4 of the May is for Makers campaign, I decided to purchase a pattern that I can see myself making in the near future.

While on a road trip with my family earlier in the year, I stumbled unexpectedly on a quaint little gift/quilt shop in a small country town. I managed to pick up a bargain jelly roll from the Moda fabric collection Road 15 by Sweetwater.

I’ve been searching for a suitable jelly roll pattern and think that this Hexie Framed quilt pattern by Quilty Love will be perfect!
