Criss Cross Applesauce- Reveal Day 5

When I was young we would sit crossed legged and the name we had for that style, isn't politically correct, so now kids sit "Criss Cross Applesauce" style. 

I find that to be pretty disturbing  - I ask, are the kids sitting in applesauce? Should I surmise that  applesauce can be created by kids sitting crosslegged?   I leave you to ponder that dilemma...

This is the first piece that doesn't have any letters or numbers in it.  Nothing deep, just a realization.  You didn't really expect any deep thoughts after the applesauce talk, did you?
  • Lines are from leftover fabric from the background for Day 3 - Linear Thinking
  • Free cut with rotary cutter the lines (!!!- not sure if I've done this before)
  • Free Motion ZigZag stitched the lines down
  • Free Motion Machine quilted - alternating an overlapping square box pattern!!! and stippling

  • Fused raw edge binding with free cut batik strips

  * - These steps were done prior to 12x12x12 challenge
!!! - First time I ever did this type of thing

 This was a simple quilt, put together with what felt like all gut feeling, no thinking allowed!  I really like the effect of the lines going over and under each other - woven in time...  Enjoying the fruits of creativity - even if "criss cross applesauce" plays in an endless loop in my mind.

  1. I really like this one! I especially like the slightly asymmetrical composition. I'd love to see it side by side with Day 3.
