Cross Reference FeeNee
Cross Reference is finally crossed off the to-do list. I stitched up the binding corners and some missed spots from machine binding, added a label, gave it a bath, and called our son to come pick it up.
Being rather tall, Nick didn't need help to hold it off the ground. The quilt is about twin size, 60x80ish, smaller than the pattern as written in the April 2017 American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, designer Susan Ache. I just found the pattern as a stand alone PDF purchase on APQshop.com. My version is made from Kona Snow for the background, Kona Prussian Blue for the small cross blocks, and a variety of blue and rust prints from stash.
I think he likes it! Especially since he's been not-so-subtly bugging me for the past month to get it done.
