Thanks for your good wishes, Susan!

I have made and sold a lot of these watercolor cross quilts, both as wallhangings and pillows. They are very popular! They are also VERY fun to make, it's like doing a jigsaw puzzle. This one has been sitting on a shelf, waiting for it's binding for many months, and I finally got around to it last week! I will post a tutorial some time so you can see the process.

Awesome quilt, Leslie. It's what I expect from you, however - awesome and beautiful projects! Thanks for having a blog and being an organizer for Craftser swaps, and helping me develop some skills in 2011 - I look forward to more exciting new things from you in 2012 - Happy Happy New Year, friend!!

I really love this little cross watercolor quilt - so pretty. I have some graphy-fabricy stuff to make one of these. Something new for me in 2012 to try. :)
