Criss Cross-Apple Sauce

was the theme running in my head with Solidia's block.
What fun fabric to play with.  I love the fish!
Thank you Solidia for letting me play with all the fun, quiltey goodness!

In fact, I loved piecing this so much, and the way it looked, I'm using it as my block for the Indianapolis Modern Quilt Guild bee I'm in.

I've been collecting oranges for a long time and just knew they had to be what this block was made from.
Plus, in cutting out one and having the other hst's returned to me, I'll have two quilts for my Quilts for Comfort project I've started this year.

For two years I've wanted to start making quilts for cancer patients at the center where my mom receives her treatments, but feeling frustrated because every time I'd try to start...Life and circumstances would not let me.

I finally have the opportunity and a new year to commit to this project that's near and dear to my heart.

So, thank you Solidia for the inspiration and the pattern to help me get started!

Happy New Year everyone!

  1. Wonderful job. It's such an interesting block. I'm glad to see one finished since I was a bit unsure of why I got so many fabrics---now I get it.

    Great going on the cancer quilt donation. It feels so good and right.

    Happy New Year to you all.
