Wonky and cross

A couple of years, a call went out for wonky cross blocks in shades of blue and grey to make boys quilts for the Siblings Together charity. I sewed up a bunch and sent them off.


But then a strange thing happened - I couldn't stop making them and soon enough I had almost enough to make a quilt of my own. To spice things up a bit, I added some orange fabrics into the mix.


Once the top was all sewn together, I quilted it on the longarm, using a hand-guided pantograph called Double Bubble.



I added an orange binding, putting in the last stitches on a cold evening in front of the fire.


And here's the finished quilt before I sent it off to Siblings Together for their 2016 quilt drive.
