Crosses on Point

Hello Everyone,

This quilt that I made, was completed several years ago as a sample for a local LQS. It is consist of all Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Some of these are still available, some not. The quilt was fun to do but definitely requires you to use a design wall for placement purposes.


The pattern was from a magazine. I think it was in Quilt Magazine, although I am not sure what year it was. You can see in this photo the fan fabric. That was one of my favorites.


Many Kaffe florals. The border fabric Paisley Jungle is still available here. You can see in this photo that the block is just two rectangles set on point. But because you are sewing 2 different fabrics together, that will then later form the cross, you really need to lay it out for correct placement.


Other than laying it on the design wall, this was not a difficult pattern to piece. Quick, easy, and satisfying.


This photo really shows off the crosses. The quilt is all quilted and washed. Nice soft and cuddly, just the way I like them!

Check out the new Kaffe FQ and 1/2 yard bundles here.

Until Next Time...

I can see that it would have to be designed either on paper or on the wall before you sewed anything together. It is gorgeous!

Very pretty, Jackie! I like quilts like this with both high and low contrast areas -- some almost fade together and others stand out a bit. It is so much for fun, interesting, and unpredictable.
