Vintage florals improv cross quilt

In need of a little quiltspiration for #IGquiltfest's work-in-progress prompt, I turned to my Fall 2015 issue of Modern Patchwork magazine. Flipping through, I decided to try my hand at making some improv cross blocks using a cutting technique inspired by the Improv Cross Patchwork Quilt by Darci Sews.
