Patchwork of the Crosses

It's time for another block!  These are the fabrics I used:

You can use the same fabrics and get totally different looks.  For example, here are two blocks I made using the same fabrics.

It's fun to play with the fabrics and see what you can come up with. 
For both of these blocks, I used a narrow stripe from the gray striped fabric for the center fussy-cut honeycombs.  Cut conservatively and  be sure to save the rest of this fabric as we'll be using it again in another block - it's just one of those fabrics that you want to use every square inch of!

I really like these blocks! I'm making one also but my colors are darker. What color have you decided on for background?
