cross blocks

May 1st,  I started working on my One monthly Goal. I don't want the month to get away from me. And with Spring, and garden, and lots of family stuff, I need to get right to it.
I made a first prototype of the cross block and it worked.
I am using 2 inch strips cut at 5 1/2 inches to allow for trimming the corners. For the triangles, I am using 4 1/2 inch strips using the easy angle ruler. I have them cut.
And I have a few sewn.


These are 8 1/4 inches but I will trim them to 7 1/2. So exciting to be working on this quilt.

I have been sneaking a few garlic knots as I get a chance since they are so fun.
