Another Good finish…

I am plowing my way through my “must do before we leave” list… and this week it meant finishing up last month’s Do Good Stitches quilt top.  I was Queen Bee and set a simple, but fabulous cross block.

I used the dimension from Wooden Spoon’s flickr photo https://www.flickr.com/photos/wooden_spoon/8584301543/ and choose a navy blue cross on a scrappy low volume background.  The finished quilt top is scrap-tastic.

I love how the background has an amazing array of colours just subtly hanging out.  Because the cross is so dark it was easy to get great contrast with a variety of different colours and fabrics.

We also managed to sneak in some great novelty prints too…just for fun.

I trimmed all the blocks to 11 1/2 inches unfinished, and possibly got a little carried away in making my samples.  I made 12 blocks so easily, so that when they were added to my fellow Hope Circle members blocks we had enough blocks to 5 across and 6 down…instead of the usual 4 across by 5 down.

The top is in need of a some extra starch and a good press but it will all have to wait till next month to be completed!  December is going to be crazy, I can tell.
