I just finished up the center portion of 9-Patch Criss Cross. I like how it turned out; I have to admit that I was a bit fussy about putting this one together. Normally I am not anal about these things, but this quilt has no seams turned under or going the wrong way. If a point got lost in the seam allowance, I picked it out and did it over. For some reason I just wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. *grin* I did, and it looks pretty darn good both on the front and the back!!
Now I must think about borders. The book calls for a 2.5-inch dark brown border and a 7.5-inch red border (finishes at 2 and 7 inches, respectively). This works for me, so I just need to haul out the fabric bins and do some stash diving. I think I will be able to come up with two fabrics that will suit me.
Off to quilt and watch Olympics!!
Happy Quilting, Friends!
