Friday Finish: Criss Cross Leftovers

When I was making my Criss Cross Applesauce quilt I ran into a bit of a problem.  I was suppose to be making blocks with the four red corners but ended up making a stack of x blocks instead.

One of the x blocks made its way into the original Criss Cross Applesauce quilt shown above.  I didn’t want to waste the remaining blocks so I sewed them into a simple baby quilt.

The quilt is really simple but simple in a cute boy baby kind of way.  You might be surprised to know that I used a variegated thread that ranged from navy blue to baby blue to white.  I love how it looks.

I did a simple small close stipple and I am very happy with that too.  I’ve seen some awesome quilts at Country Threads that were quilted with a small stipple that were amazing.  The stipple was even smaller than what I have here.  Someday I want to try that.

If you are looking for the pattern, it’s just a variation and can be found in Scraps & Shirttails II: Continuing the Art of Quilting Green.

Today, I am hooking up with……Confessions of a Fabric AddictLink a Finish FridayFreedom Fridays, Michelle’s Romantic Tangle and Crazy Mom Quilts.
