I’m a little lost with this wall hanging.

CrossQuilt3
I made a few blocks from one of the cross patterns in Tula Pink’s City Sampler book.

I didn’t have much of a plan when I started, and one still hasn’t emerged. I figured I’d put nine together, call it a wall hanging, and try to some sort of quilting that’s more adventurous than what I usually do (stitch-in-the-ditch or evenly spaced, one direction, straight-line quilting.)

I pondered swirls and pebbles and figure-eights, but in the end, I wanted to stick with my walking foot. So I thought I’d try for some kind of shattered look.

I go back and forth on whether I like this so far. At this point, I’ll press on and hope I’m in the mood to like it at the end!

Finishing with a view of the back – just some leftovers that will happily face the wall when this is done.

    I love the quilting on this! It’s a nice variation on straight line quilting that adds a lot of interest to the final quilt. And counterbalances the florals nicely too. 😀

    I love the quilting!  I think it looks great!  The cross block like that feels so traditional and the angular random quilting lines really sort of “unlocks” it.  I love it!

    I like your quilting. The angles create a lot of movement, my eye follows the lines to see how they connect.
    I like it! Great to try something different, isn’t it?

    Oooh, I love this. I should try more straight line quilting but I have a teeny harp space so it’s frustrating.

    Definitely keep going, Daisy! I’m sorry I didn’t comment the other day when I saw a pic of it because I was thinking that I *love* the way you’re quilting it, and seeing it again here, I still love it! Your lines are so precise and I love the cool feel of the motif with the cool blues of the quilt.
