Crosses Quilt

I have recently quilted and returned to Morag her modern Crosses Quilt.  From Morag's emails to me she sounds like she was thrilled with the results and I must say I was very excited also.
Morag's quilt is a spray of crosses in solid coloured fabrics across a white background with white borders of varying widths.  For the quilting we combined swirling traditional feathers with modern straight lines for the crosses and continuous curves for the background. 
I think the combination of traditional and modern quilting works beautifully on this quilt.

I love the way the feathers swirl from the borders into the body of the quilt to wind in amongst the crosses.

I hope you have enjoyed Morag's wonderful quilt.  Morag, I am sure it will look beautiful hanging in your new house.
