Swiss Cross Quilt Complete

Yeah!! She is done. My little Swiss Cross Quilt. I used solid cotton fabrics except for the backing which is navy blue with white stars. The backing I scored at a yard sale.

I quilted it by sewing diagonal lines, which is soooooo much easier now that I finally got a walking foot for my machine.

Don't forget, I have an easy tutorial for making cross blocks.

Wow! This is a great looking quilt. I love the deep red color next to the white. The backing fabric was such a great find!

I love it, I really want to make one of these but I currently have 5 other unfinished quilt projects! Hopefully I can do one before the end of the year and add it to your flickr group.
