The Modern Quilt Block Series is off to a great start! Thank you for your enthusiasm. This week we are sewing an easy to sew block called Crosswalk. My motto: Simple quilts are beautiful when sewn with love!
Modern fabrics call for a modern approach to quilt designs. Since this block has minimal fabrics, it is quick to cut and quick to piece. Using a stripe fabric as I have in my sample is a fun way to bring the stripe motif full circle, but it would also be fun to fussy cut.
These blocks are building blocks to a mix of blocks that will be combined in upcoming layout design ideas too! I’m excited to share what can happen with a couple of blocks alternated in a quilt top.
Turning these blocks you can create a variety of quilts, and the stripes can be all the same or a scrappy mix of fun fabrics. The same is true of the background fabric – I would love to mix up the background in a full quilt to add interest!
This week the block is free, next week it will be available for purchase in my shop.
