I finally finished my block for October's Busy Little Quilting Bee. Julia sent out two fabrics, one army green and the other red. She requested red crosses on the green background and no introduction of other fabrics or patterns. This was tough at first. I had a pile of red scraps from the lunchbag tutorial sitting next to me and I was dying to put them in. I resisted and ended up with this block. I had taken a peek at the flickr group and noticed that another member had already done something similar to what I had in mind. So, I came up with this one, inspired by Crazymomquilt's red cross pillow. At first I wasn't all that excited about the colors and the concept, but I think Julia had a great vision that I would have never seen. I am so excited to see how her quilt is going to turn out. Everyone's blocks are looking so good and I think she's going to have the cutest quilt for her nephew. That is if she can give it up!!
