Quilt of the Day: Cross Quilts

I have been seeing some AMAZING cross quilts on-line, and I wanted to share some of them.
Betty Whoosh did this striking red and white quilt.
Swiss Cross Quilt
Betty is no stranger to the Cross Quilt. A look at her lovely blog turns up MANY of them. She must be one fast quilter!

Miammi made this bold aqua and orange one

Jaquie from Tall Grass Prairie Studio shared this whimsical masterpiece
peace and comfort

Mrs. Sorrells made “Me Plus You”
me plus you quilt
She has a quilting blog as well.

It is very interesting to me, so see how much the different artists play with the structure. Some are precise, and some are intentionally “wonkey”, and some are just “off the ranch” completely. And with each departure, the balance shifts, and the eye moves. They are all fabulous!

Is it time for a cross quilt? Yes, it may be!
