MSP Modern Guild Challenge: Cross Blocks


Here is an update of my first post on my Minneapolis Modern Quilt Challenge... I used my background fabric and the 2.5 inch strips from the other members to make 36 cross blocks. After finishing the blocks though, I decided I was looking for a bit more wonky irregularity... so of the blocks below about 2/3rds have been modified. The fabric draped over the ironing board is going to be my binding and backing and I plan on hanging the finished piece up.
What do you think? Wonky enough? To see some of the finished projects, check out the flickr group.

Yes, wonky enough! I like the changes you made and the binding is going to be perfect. That's a great guild challenge.

This is great! I have lots of extra squares left over - may have to do something similar to use them up!
