Crossroads Quilt Along, Month 6 – Chain Block

By Melissa LeRay

Ohhowsweet.com Crossroads Chain Block

Hello! Welcome to month six of the Crossroads Quiltalong! Today Fat Quarter Shop is releasing the Chain Block!  This month calls for making 18 blocks, and they add so much cohesiveness to the entire quilt.  I love how they really give your eyes something to fall onto!

The Crossroads quilt was designed by Joanna Figueroa, and I’m among the bloggers that are sewing the blocks up each month. I’m using the newly released Vintage Picnic by Bonnie + Camille, and I chose to make all my Chain Blocks using the various red prints paired with many of the prints in the collection that I hadn’t yet used, as well as Moda Bella 97 for the background.  I love how these blocks are supposed to look scrapy, and each block is a little different.

Fat Quarter Shop is offering this as a free pattern, but they would love it if you would consider donating just $5 to the March of Dimes for each pattern you use during the quilt-along.  March of Dimes is a charity that aims to end prematurity, and the sometimes debilitating effects that come from it.

Hello! Welcome to month four of the Crossroads Quiltalong! Today Fat Quarter Shop is releasing the Family Block!  These three blocks are so sweet!

The Crossroads quilt was designed by Joanna Figueroa, and I’m among the bloggers that are sewing the blocks up each month. I’m using the newly released Vintage Picnic by Bonnie + Camille, and I chose to make all my Family Blocks using the various navy prints paired with polka dots, and Moda Bella 97 for the background.  I’m having so much fun picking out the prints for each block, and I thought that these three really popped against the white.
