crossed top

I have a top  for crossed strings. It was such an adventure building the blocks, putting the blocks together, and discovering a top. I think at this point, I will call it done and make a back and binding. I was hoping to have a nice day to take photos, but, no.

It was windy and no sunshine. I think the quilt has more color in real life, but, I like the weave. I still have a whole basket of strings.
