Double Cross Quilt

Prints and solids combine in a quilt that sets two different cross blocks on point. Cutting up large prints adds interest to the wall hanging, and a scrappy middle border breaks up the dark blue inner and outer borders. Fabrics are from the Bird’s Eye View collection by Sarah Watson and Cirrus Solids collection, both from Cloud 9 Fabrics.
