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!
If you would like a chance to win your own copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 7 or one of my Patterns, enter the giveaway below. (Giveaway ends Sunday, May 5, 2013 at 11:59pm)
