Another finished quilt!

Ok – so I have no clue what to name this one so if you have bright ideas please leave ‘em in the comments! This is the one I was starting back here


I have been leaning more and more on non-block based quilt designs but I also love to improv. piece so I have been thinking of ways to combine the two. I feel like this quilt is a good example of that. Personally, I love it.

Commission Detail

I quilted with dense straight lines (as usual – expect to see a whole lot more of this outta me – I’m loving it these days) and then less densely through the piecing. You can see the quilting really well on the back.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

      Love this! I agree with Crossroads as the name. The quilting is so fab from the back, and the color palette is beautiful too.

    Crosshatch? Or it could be an 80′s throw(back) quilt – Kriss Kross.

    It’s beautiful. Looks like CROSSROADS to me.

    Okay, so the first thought I had was Crosshatch, and that was the first comment I saw too! I also like the idea of The Double Cross…
    Love the colours, the quilting, and the piecing.

    I love your concept of non-block based quilting. This took my breath away at first glance.

    …..And then I saw the back.

    Oh my. You have a winner there. Stunning!!

    I love love love it! This is delightful. It looks “woven” so a name with weave or woven might fit! Woven Delight.

    I’m not one for naming quilts “just because”. My first thought was “who cares about the name – the quilt is FABULOUS!”
