Sunday Quilt Inspiration: C R O S S E S

decorative wooden crosses | Handmade layered wood cross by SignsBYDebbieHess on EtsyI've been interested in making a cross quilt for a while now, and though I've made a block or two, I'd really like to begin working on quilt with lots of crosses.  So, I thought maybe it's time to begin looking for inspiration pieces.  

I've had a board, which I call "cross, crucifix" for quite a while but I haven't been pinning to it like I should.  So I decided to add some pretty crosses in different styles, colors and materials.  

Some of these I may have shown you before (apologies beforehand) but mostly I thought it would be a good idea to get a sense of what's out there and to begin to figure out what I like.
