Crosswise quilt is done

My Crosswise quilt is finally quilted and bound.  You can read my previous post about this quilt here.

What I like the most about this quilt is the block.  It has been called Churn Dash, Monkey Wrench and Greek Cross.  What I like about this block is how perfectly it can be sewn using nickel fabric squares.  I plan to post a tutorial showing how to construct it.

Linda used a pantograph quilting design called Double Bud and Puff batting to create alot of dimension on this little quilt.  The thick batting makes the quilting stand out more.  She has some pictures on her blog that illustrate this a little better.

I'm showing the back of the quilt here to point out what can happen when you use a white or mostly white background.  Can you see the shadows of the blocks showing through?
