Patchwork of the Crosses

I've been roped into starting a new project (it doesn't take much). Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses is very popular. Many quilters, English Paper Piecing enthusiasts mainly" have made or are making this quilt. I am not a fan of this method and I would rather draw sewing lines on my fabric so I'm grateful for Inklingo which saves me the time by allowing me to print those lines. 

On Saturday I purchased a lovely focus fabric intending to use it for this project but when I got up on Sunday I had other plans. I spent the day over thinking the whole process and almost gave up on starting. In the end I just reached into a scrap back and out came a lovely striped fabric. I only needed a 5 x 7 piece for the four center hexagons. I then dug around for fabric to go with it. Why didn't I think of doing this earlier? I really enjoyed that process. 

I haven't sewn it yet. There are two options I'm considering. I'll sleep on it. I'm thinking I'll go with the one that has the dark brown or I may use all the stripes and add some dark brown to replace the light ones. Here I go thinking again.
