Surfing the internet, and Pinterest in particular, I decided to attempt a wonky cross design, but with a twist!
Here are the fabrics I started with:
From each fat quarter I cut out four squares and some strips of varying widths. Then I randomly mixed the blacks with the whites and set off making the wonky crosses.
Here are some of the black squares with white crosses before they were cut to uniform size and stitched together with the white squares with black crosses.
Here is the final quilt, with a red binding and a simple calico backing.

Did I say that DH loves it, and has requested it is being hung in our sitting room (lounge for all of you Americans out there)!?!
Most of the fabrics were bought from the following shops:
