I spent a crazy amount of time trying to match up and align the top and bottom parts of the plus for each block. I'm glad I did because a wonky plus sign is definitely not the look I'm going for.
I also did a lot of ironing.
Unfortunately, this quilt top is going back in a basket to be basted/quilted at a later date. I've got some other projects that have deadlines coming up. Wedding dates and due dates tend to trump personal projects. At least I have something to look forward to completing in the near future.
