I've had fun playing in my sewing room since my last post. Yesterday I finished the quilt I started in that last post, which I'm calling Lemon Zinger. It's the most fun I've had making a quilt in a really long time. The Wonky Cross blocks designed by Elizabeth Hartman at Oh, Fransson! are so much fun to make and require no fussy piecing or matching - my favorite kind!
I decided to make just every other block an X and intersperse the Xs with all the fun black, white, yellow and grey fabrics I was able to find. There are so many wonderful prints out there, and my quilt ended up like an adult "I Spy" quilt. Some of the prints were just too cute to cut up and make Xs through (but maybe part of it was me being too lazy to make 72 X blocks!). At any rate, I couldn't be happier with how this quilt turned out, and I've already started on my next Oh, Fransson! quilt - the Crazy 9-Patch Lattice Quilt. Again, so much fun, I couldn't stop sewing last night!
