Inspired by the cross patches made by quilters in this virtual quilting bee pool, I have recently become obsessed with sewing cross blocks. I have no idea what I’m going to do with them, especially as they aren’t uniform in shape, size, color scheme or anything except the crosses. I suppose they might become a free-form quilt of some sort. Right now I’m just enjoying the process.
The other night I realized that the timing of this obsession cannot be merely coincidental. Obsessing over crosses just as Lent begins? That smacks of something more. I think for the duration of Lent I’m going to limit myself to making these joyful, flowery crosses.
