do. good stitches: yellow cross quilt

In December, I was the quilter for my circle of do. Good Stitches. I decided to keep it simple, since it was the holiday season, and I asked our group members to make two cross blocks, using any shade of solid yellow.

I love, love, love how this quilt turned out! The yellow crosses are so cheery and happy, and I'm so inspired to work with this palette more. I quilted it with a crosshatch pattern in yellow thread.

For the backing, I used a Marimekko print my mother-in-law got on super sale from the Crate and Barrel outlet. It's a wide sateen fabric, which meant that I didn't have to piece it, which I really enjoyed. For the binding, I used a striped, vintage-looking print that's been in my stash for ages---it was nice to finally use it up.

I donated the quilt to my local chapter of Project Linus this past weekend, so it's now off to its new home.
