Crossroads Quilt Along Mini Quilt Family Block

My Crossroads Quilt Along Mini Quilt and my full size version are coming along nicely! I wonder how many ambitious quilters  have started working ahead, piecing borders or sashings?

Crossroads Quilt Along Family Block │ Out of the Blue Quilts by Sondra DavisonI’ve got my tin ready for some half-square triangles, but that’s about as far as I’ve got on border work. I love doing both sizes of blocks and am so happy  I chose to use two different fabric lines rather than make both quilts exactly the same.

I chose to use a Layer Cake and, because the pieces are so small in the mini blocks, I often choose a smaller print so the design easily can be seen in the block.

I’m still in love with my fabric choice for the full size blocks, Moda’s Larkspur by 3 Sisters.

 

Moda Larkspur Quilt at Craftsy

I like the quilt above. It’s a kit available at Craftsy and helps me envision how  the fabrics look sew together. I really think the fabric is going to look even more impressive in the Crossroads Quilt.

Monthly Reminder for the Crossroads Quilt Along Mini

If you’re not familiar with the Crossroads Quilt Along, I wrote more about it here. The instructions for each 8-inch, full size, monthly block are provided by the Fat Quarter Shop. You need those instructions, as I am only providing replacement measurements to create a 4¼” block each month. Share your progress and creations with us on Crossroads Facebook group.
