your package will go out in the next couple of days. you will be receiving some muslin, some kona bone, red and a few black scraps. feel free to use your own fabric as long as it's red.
the crosses can float in the background or extend to the edges of the block. you can combine fabrics or have the cross be one fabric. don't feel like you need to keep the background fabric consistent. change it up within the block. i want the quilt to have dimension and that's a good way to do that. i prefer kind of skinny crosses, but improvise the shape however you want to...as long as it reads as cross it'll be great. i love the curvy, improv feel of the crosses in the inspiration quilt.
the crosses can be centered in the block or not...whatever is fine with me. i only want touches of black in the quilt, so try to stay with primarily red.
any questions, let me know. now i need to get to the post office!
