When I was looking for inspiration for this quilt, two things came to mind. I have always loved the simplicity of Pia Wallen's Cross Blanket and I couldn't get this ombre sweater I saw on Erica's Pinterest out of my mind. I simply put the two together and came up with this! I like how the crosses almost disappear on one end of the quilt.
I mentioned how I love looking at the back of the quilt (the side that no one sees) and I love holding the quilt top up to the light and seeing the structure behind shining through. It reminds me of Korean Pojagi patchwork, something I really want to learn how to do one day.
The girls at the The Workroom helped me pick out the cutest fabric for the quilt back and I am hoping to baste it together in the next few days! I am thrilled with how it turned out and I look forward to sitting on the couch and hand quilting it together over the next little while! I will be thinking of our little girl with every stitch.
