Crossroads blocks

   Yes, that is a little bit of snow in the background.....a  not too common event here.  So I could not resist using it to take a couple of photos.
   This little top will be a quilt for one of the twins to come.  I said I was a minimalist piecer and this top  proves it.  It is very quick and easy to put together,  and  a great way to use those small bit of leftover strips.










   Connie at Freemotion on the River provided the pattern in three sizes.  This is the largest size block.  Twelve blocks and I have a nice size play quilt---36" by 48".  I have a second one to put together today.  But I couldn't help but think about variations-----maybe done in batiks, or showcase some floral prints in the large squares, or done in blue and yellow.
  Enough day dream planning.....I need to be stitching and think about the quilting.
Happy stitching.

This is a very quick pattern to do up and a great scrap buster, too. This is very sweet!

Another love from me! I want one to keep too but can't decide that what kind of fabrics to use. I haven't laid mine out this way... I've always done the chain version with the white squares coming together. I'll have to try this with my RSC13 blocks when I start to assemble them.

This top is so pretty! All we had was sleet....not even pretty to look at, but ample reason for things to shut down here for a while.

...I've always envied folks who have snow backgrounds for their quilt photos and love yours! Love your scrappy quilt... and I'm trying to figure out your layout. *lol*

I have snow here too but nothing to photograph... *sigh*

Oooo--I think it would be fun in batiks! : )

I printed off the pattern for this & want to make a baby quilt. Both of yours look great. Thanks for the snow pictures.

So many bright, fun fabrics. Perfect play quilt. I love how it turned out.

Great quilt, my scraps are getting out of control again. Thanks for the link, she has some wonderful tutorials over there.

Have you pieced this in long strips rather than blocks?
I really like the design and yes it would look great also in batiks like Janet said.

I love those blocks -- they are on my "someday" list. It will be interesting to see how you quilt it with all that white space.

Debbie your Crossroads quilt looks so neat out in the snow!! Thanks so much for the shout out and I need to pull my blocks out too! Batiks would be beautiful in this!
