Berry Cross Quilt-Along Fun!

Yesterday I came across what looks to be a very fun quilt-along going on with Jennifer over at The Inquiring Quilter

It's not too late to join in as it is a lap-size quilt and we're only half-way along. She's offering great giveaways at each stage of progress.

Here's just part of what I accomplished in a few hours yesterday.

I was able to pull everything from my stash, and it looks pretty well coordinated (if I do say so myself, lol).  These fabrics weren't part of a collection when I bought them.

I hope everyone is recovering quickly from 'election stress.'  I know fabric therapy has really been soothing to me.  I began quilting as a stress therapy in 2006, and it has served me well for the ten years since.  It's tactile, it's colorful, it's relaxing, and it's creative -- pretty amazing combination.

Linking up with Oh, Scrap! at Quilting is more fun than housework and Sunday Stash at MolliSparkles.

Thank you for reading.



  1. Oh, I so agree with you that fabric therapy is soothing and stress - reducing! It helped me make it through my teaching career, and it looks like I will still need it. Lol! Love the colors and fabric you chose for your Berry Cross quilt!

  2. Those are beautiful blocks. I can't wait to see the final finished quilt top.

  3. Pretty colors in those blocks. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  4. Love the colors. I'm sure this will be a great quilt. Cheers, Sylvia at Treadlestitches

  5. Love these colors and I'm so glad you are joining us! You're right, it's a simple quilt and can be made fast.

  6. You are so right about fabric therapy! If I don't sew for a while, I get very cranky!

  7. Love your blocks. If I don't sew well, then I get cranky so I sew!
