I made this for my husbands best friend and his wife. They were expecting and didnt know the sex. They are pretty country and religious so I stuck with the tans, blues, reds and greens and I love how the crosses "pop". I really love this quilt. stipple in the middle and L's and E's doubled up (on top of each other) on the border. I found this pattern online and ordered the bood - material obbesesion - when I got the book I couldnt find it in there until I looked it up online again and realized the picture I saw was with one block rotated to create the circles and crosses - the pattern is "stashbuster" - It is amazing how much rotating every other blocks changes the entire quilt!!!

I'm amazed at both the circles and crosses that appear in this pattern.  Striking!

It was time consuming because I wanted each block to be different. I would sew 5 strips together in different sizes 10 in in length which would only give me 2 triangles  I don't even know how many different fabrics are in it. Probably close to 40. Other than the cutting and fringe to make sure I didn't replicate other strips it wasn't that bad. I wanted to keep this quilt so bad! Perfect for my living room. I think the finished size was 70 x 70
