Hey everyone! Regular readers of my blog know that recently hosted a quilt along for my pattern Berry Cross. If you missed out, you can click the tab above to get all the steps to make a lap-sized quilt.
For everyone who’s been participating in the quilt along, it’s finally time for the big reveal! I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had. Thanks so much for quilting along with me.
Let's look at my quilts in detail. Here is my Christmas version which I call “Christmas Cross.” I used Colorway 2 to create it.
This version was quilted with an eight pointed poinsettia design. In the inner border, I did a simple rolling wave, and for the outer border, I traced the poinsettia shapes.

My second version of Berry Cross uses Colorway 1 and is called simply Berry Cross. Clever, aren’t I? <grin> Berry Cross is quilted with circles in a cross pattern within each block. The circles (berries) also appear in the outer squares of the berry blocks within a curved frame. The inner border has a simple rolling scroll; a berry leaf appears in the outer border.
