Double cross blocks

I was flicking back through graph books, where I make pretty colouring in patterns sometimes, and thought I would quite like to make these cross blocks. I must get out the colour pencils again, it's strangely soothing. And sometimes I make good patterns (although normally not).

I couldn't decide on a colour scheme and then I realised that the reason I liked them so much was the colours of the drawing. So why not go with that, and I did.

Hours of fun, although I really should be finishing up other quilts that I have on the go, but where is the fun in that? It is still hot, although a long weekend down the coast helped a bit (the water is freezing! I just floated around like an iceberg. It was so nice to be cool for a change). In fact we had a lovely weekend all up - good waves and everyone was very relaxed. We didn't know until the last minute whether number one son was in the baseball finals or not - it had to go to a count back! such excitement - but we were all very relieved when they missed out. And the torture of organised sport is over.


  1. i really like those blocks! good job! and purple is my favorite color.

  2. The very thought of starting a quilt when you haven't finished the previous one... no no no. I would get SO confused. Unlike you.
