    Squares and Crosses

    Here is the finished top. I tried to keep the lights and the darks even throughout, but I'm not sure I succeeded. Each row has the same color cornerstones to give it some unity.

    Looks good. I often second guess my placements when I'm done with a project. I guess that's part of the artistry of quilt making. Always wondering "what if".

        Looks great! I always take pictures and go look at them on the computer screen. Another thing, I have the red sunglasses. That really helps with value placement.

          That is very nice! I’m not drawn to Civil War fabrics, but this is a very handsome quilt! How big is it?

                It's about 90 percent Kansas Troubles. Hardly made a dent in the Jelly Roll or the Layer Cake.

                    That's really nice. I love those Kansas Troubles fabrics. How many quilts do you make in a year? You are so productive.

                      Well, given that I haven't been doing this for a year (not until August) I can't answer that. To date, I have done 13 tops with four quilted and three in the bullpen, not to mention the ones that Cheryl will practice her FMQ on. I think having the free time to do it, plus years of not quitting writing until the story was complete (at least where newspapers were concerned) gave me the training to get things done. Believe me, I wish that would translate over to my free-lance stuff.
