Whenever I finish a project, I feel a tension between what I need to do – finish those w.i.p.s. – and what I want to do – start something new.
This weekend, I ignored the stack of w.i.p.s. and started something new.
I’ve had my eye on making the quilt on the cover of Modern Log Cabin Quilting by Susan Beal ever since the book came out in 2011.
I rummaged through my scraps and pulled out blues and greens.
Each block of the Modern Crosses quilt is made of 4 simple log cabin units. When the units come together, they form a cross. Simply genius, Susan!
I’ve got 5 blocks done so far. 55 to go!
If you’re curious about how I picked the colors for this quilt, stay tuned. Tomorrow, I’ll share 3 easy steps for picking the perfect color scheme.
Linking up to W.i.P. Wednesday!
