Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 7 Blog Hop Stop

Apr 30, 2013
Pin It
I am just ecstatic to have my block included in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 7!  I am a part of the Blog Hop today hosted by Quiltmaker's Quilty Pleasures blog.  Join in the fun for your chance to win a copy of 100 Blocks Vol. 7 (on sale May 7th) at the end of the post.  I'll also be giving away 2 copies of my patterns.


Inside you will find my block, Double Crossed.  Here she is!  She came out so fresh and springy, even though her name suggests something sinister and sneaky.

Here are a few fun layout ideas using the Double Crossed block.  In the example below, the block is repeated in a traditional horizontal setting.  When the quilt comes together, on point squares are formed by joining the blocks.

In a different variation, take the same setting, but add a little sashing and a few cornerstones.... aren't they great?  Look at those shoo-fly blocks that appear.  How fun!

  52. I enjoy patchwork quilting. Sometimes I just keep the quilt for myself or give away to a member of my family. I just make a blue and white pinwheel quilt for my great grandson. I liked it so much I made another one; just larger this time around. Your block, double crossed would be fun to make. Great secondary design. That is what makes this unique. Thank you for giving all of us a chance to win.
