Modern Crosses Quilt

I like precision piecing, making every seam nest perfectly, it's extremely satisfying. But at the same time, I also like projects that are more improvisational, as it allows me to take a breather and be more relaxed. Therefore, I like to alternate these types of projects so that I go from being more challenged to being more relaxed and back again, as they're each so wonderful in their own way.

My latest "relax" project is Modern Crosses, a quilt designed by one of my favorite modern quilters, Elizabeth Hartman. I've decided to make mine 30" x 60" to serve as a wallhanging. For the fabrics, I'm using a pack of Fat Quarters from Free Spirit Fabrics that I got in my April Quilty Box.

I cut strips and squares of various sizes, and set out to make the wonky crosses. I really liked doing these, as they're so relaxing, and I can even be a little off in my quarter-inch seam and it doesn't matter.

I don't know how I'm going to quilt it yet, but I've got so many ideas! It's picking one that's the hard part.
