Crosscut Quilt-Along


When Debbie of A Quilter's Table announced the Crosscut Quilt-Along, using her Crosscut blocks tutorial I jumped right in!

I decided to go for a scrappy look and raided my scrap stash for long strips. For some reason I was drawn to bright autumnal colours - orange, yellow, green and a bit of grey and brown. I sewed them all together, jelly roll race style, and picked out some of my favourite low volume prints to make the blocks.


This is how the original blocks looked:


When I was re-cutting I made sure to keep that piece of fabric that has 'Lucy' on it!


Every stage was really fun and it was cool putting the blocks together and coming up with something totally unique. I have plans for this little quilt top and I think I will be incorporating it into something else.


Thanks for the fun quilt-along Debbie!

  11. Although I read Debbie's blog I somehow missed these posts and missed the qal. Probably just as well with so many projects on the go. I have however loved watching how they have all come together. Yours looks brilliant
