The blocks were made for me by members of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild Scrappy Bee way back in 2011. I am excited to finally be cuddling with this quilt instead of shifting it around my sewing closet!
I even found the perfect backing in my stash in the form of this cursive text print by ikea.
Straight line quilting is my favorite style for the texture it adds after a run through the washer and dryer.
Crossings is my second time making this pattern. The first quilt, X Marks the Spot, was made in 2010 and was sent, along with others, to Rwanda where it now decorates the bed of a child at New Hope Homes.
Several have asked about the pattern for this quilt. You can find the original directions here. It's a great pattern for using up scraps!
Crossings is my second and final UFO finish for the 4th Quarter of the Finish A-long. My original list was for 3 quilts, so i will be moving the third project along to my 2014 list. Thank you, Leanne for doing such a great job of motivating me, and many others, to finish up our languishing quilts!
Take a look at all of the beautiful finishes here. If you've never tried committing to the Finish-A-Long, I highly recommend it if you like results.
For me, it meant eleven finishes in 2012 that probably would still be UFOs!
