Finish It Up Friday ~ Swiss Crosses

On Christmas Eve, Lori at Humble Quilts , shared a tutorial for a small quilt called Swiss Cross. I decided to give it a go.

I wanted the large triangles to be the same as the background shirting, but I didn’t have enough.

The above two photos were taken before washing; these next two were after.

I really love this little quilt!

Have a great day!

    Like your little quilt so much! I think the use of a second shirting that is a little darker than the patchwork background adds depth to the quilt. A happy coincidence.

    I love it! I love that your background is two different fabrics. I’ve got my fabric laid out to make mine but haven’t started yet. Have a good weekend. Hugs,
