{Crossroads Quilt: The beginning}

AFter receiving that gorgeous table runner from Laura for my birthday, I caught the quilting bug again.  I took a trip down to Joann's because they were having what I thought was a pretty good quilt fabric sale (turned out it was only a little bit of the fabrics on sale, but it saved me a couple bucks I guess).  Then I visited my local quilt store to add a few more. 

For a pattern, I picked the Crossroads Quilt from the Moda Bake Shop, which uses precuts.  I can't afford precuts, so I put together the patterns on my own.  I had 1/2 yard cut of each one.  I have no idea if that will be enough! LOL

Here's what I ended up with:

And I've made the first few blocks.  Please don't laugh, they are FAR from perfect!

17 more to go!


  1. Well done you! They look totally spiffing :-)

  2. They look great! Much better than my first few quilt blocks looked. I really like that quilt pattern, too... can't wait to see the finished product! :)

  3. Those look lovely! I really admire quilters -- I have yet to develop the patience and skills for all that ironing and sewing! :)

  4. there is an awful lot of ironing and sewing.. i'll give ya that. lol

  5. The fabrics work so well together, that central floral print is so fun looking.
