I used a mixture of vintage and new fabrics and winged the pattern.
I based my colour choices on Red, Yellow and Blue and made sure that they were all warm toned colours so that they wouldn't clash. When I had pieced my crosses together they had a nautical feel, like signal flags or perhaps flags of scandinavian countries.
This one is for my sweet Little Ms B, who is now a big 7 year old girl and growing more independent each day.
The quilt is hand quilted using DMC Cotton Perle in two colours.

|the patterned fabrics are vintage finds and the solids are modern, except the lighter yellow crosshatched fabric which is Caroline Friedlander (LOOVE her designs!)|
|a huge mixture of stash fabrics from Lincraft, vintage, old clothing and on-line purchases.|
|The far apart hand stitched quilting leaves the quilt soft and pliable.|
