More progress on Patchwork of the Crosses. The first three are finished blocks.

These  need one more set of hexagons.

And these final ones need two more sets of hexagons.

I have more starter crosses, but haven’t chosen what the next hexes to continue working on them, haven’t found just the right colors to work with them yet.  Still enjoying the dickens out of this project, but starting to feel guilty about not getting started on my next machine pieced project, after all, one should quilt 70% of one’s non-sleeping hours, correct??

Go on over to Patchwork Times and get inspired by what many talented quilters are doing. While you are there, wish Judy a speedy recovery, she has suffered multiple spider bites (both Brown Recluse and Black Widow) additionally, she may have fractured the foot with the Black Widow bites……probably from stamping on the darn spiders! Nothing slows this gal down, but it may shift her focus for the next week or so.

Only 70% of our non-sleeping hours? Darn!!

Your crosses are lovely - I just love the effect of fussy cutting and the colors are stunning. What "sashing" color will you be using?

Forget guilt; it's highly overrated. The crosses look lovelier every time you post them.
