Special cross stitch quilt

Yes, I know I haven’t posted in awhile.  After the Ponderosa Retreat I spent a week at Edisto Beach with my good friend Carol and her hubby and three college age boys – the oldest is 22 and then twins 21!!  I forgot to take my camera.  We had a wonderful time and I came home very rested and refreshed.  Last week I worked on this special cross stitch quilt.  The cross stitch part was done by a family’s grandmother.  They asked another quilter/piece to put the blocks into a quilt top and then she brought it to me to be quilted.  I was able to use a lot of new free motion patterns I learned at the Jamie Wallen classes I did in July.  I also stretched myself to quilt BIG to fill the spaces and to meet the customer’s budget.  You need to put some quilting in the cross stitch areas but you don’t want to quilt on the actual stitching.  So then the amount and size of the other quilting designs need to be compatible.  I am very happy with how this one turned out.
