Description

I love cross/plus blocks! They're simple, with impact.  I realize we're heading into Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I wanted to have a simple block for everyone to be able to finish off quickly. I'll be making a wallhanging out of all our blocks. 

This block is based on border #7 of the Marcelle Medallion quilt, from the book Liberty Love. The unfinished size of the block is 5 1/2", and the finished size is 5".

Colors--
Cross: Bright colors.
Background: Light background print.

We're moving on October 28th/29th, so I will send a personal message to each of you with our new address. 

Thanks, Newbee friends!!!

Update: December 30th--I've received blocks from 9 members so far. 

Update: February26th--I gave up on the person who hadn't sent me a block yet.:unamused: My friend in Tokyo made a couple blocks, and I made a few more myself, to fill in, added a border. 

The FMQ is "Adrift" from the book "Step by Step Free-Motion Quilting", by Christina Cameli, done by me, on my longarm. :heartpulse:

Finished!!! I had to hang it by 3 cords, since the wall is stucco and the quilt is so long! A moulding stick runs through the hanging sleeve (which has an opening in the middle). I drilled holes in the 3 points--middle and both ends, and ran cord through them. The cord loops hang from hooks that I put in the ceiling, near the wall.

CHECK OUT MASS-DROP FOR THE QUILTING COMMUNITY ON THE TUTORIAL LINK!!!  That's where I got that awesome 108" backing fabric! They have the neatest deals there for quilters!!! You sign in with a user name and password, but from there on, check it out daily for new quilter's deals! I've gotten some real neat fabrics at a great price, and some useful notions affordably from there, also.
