Finally the Quilt is Finished!

I know it’s only taken forever, but keep in mind I’ve been raising two kids and have written five books in the interim! But isn’t it darling? The pattern is called Crossroads. I still have the first quilt I ever made and it’s from this pattern as well. I like it a lot. It’s very striking and graphic. I always make baby quilts at least twin bed sized so they can use it a long time. What do you guys think?

The deets: 100% fabric, mainly scraps, some from from 20s/30s retro prints. The only fabric I purchased is the red pindot and the backing. Warm & Natural all cotton unbleached batt. I didn’t pre-wash any of the fabric (insane, I know, especially with the red) but I LOVE the old timey look a quilt gets when it’s washed and the fabric shrinks a bit. It looks snuggly and lived in, so yeah, I take a big risk, and yes, I’ve had a MAJOR disaster, with BLUE of all colors!
