Las Cruces

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Las Cruces (Southwestern Crosses) Link to website or photo www.swdecoratives.com/proddetail.php?prod=BOMlascruces What are you most proud of? My husband did most of the tracing onto fusible web and cutting of the pieces including the border pieces. My job was to do the machine applique. I would have to say I am most proud of having it completed! I wish you could see the machine quilting in person--my long-arm quilter did the quilting free hand on her long-arm, so each block is quilted to match the individual cross, as is the border. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to try it. The instructions are very thorough and the Albuquerque quilt shop was most helpful even though I live in Nebraska.
