Vintage Crosses Quilt Pattern

Vintage Crosses Quilt design was something I had been thinking about for a while, you know how you see something in your mind and then work on making it come to life. I had been thinking about an applique quilt with pieced blocks, I love the little cross block and it was the perfect block for my idea. I wanted loads of fabrics all of the same tone so they all blended together easily. Reproductions are a favorite and most of my fabric collection is repro's, I love the warm, murky, snuggle look they give to a quilt. Making the quilt look like it could have been made a long time ago.

I started by thinking of the layout of the quilt, which is not how it ended up LOL. I was going to do the traditional four applique blocks across and four applique blocks down sashed with the cross blocks. But after making the first four blocks I thought the quilt needed something extra, so I decided to make the center of the quilt a little more interesting with applique. I played with all the applique motifs in the twelve applique blocks designs and came up with my applique center design. ( which I love )

Vintage Crosses will always be a favorite for me, I loved working on it from start to finish.

I have been busy taking photos of my quilts, for the website so wanted to share them with you here. These are the photos I have taken of the Vintage Crosses Quilt I hope you like them.

This morning I am sewing the border fabrics together for the top and bottom borders of the Roses quilt. I have selected and range of tone on tone prints some light and some with a little bit of colour to give a bit of interest. I love to mix up the fabrics, using a large selection. Something I find helpful when piecing the strips is to pin at least the end of the seam so the fabrics don't shift while you are sewing and end up with one end longer than the other.

I am not in a hurry to get to the finish line with this quilt, I love the whole process, every step and stitch. This week has had me finding the perfect fabric for the birds, I have used a window to get the perfect area of the fabric to make the birds look their best. Trying many different fabrics, I now have more birds than I need and some to set aside for another quilt. This is usually the case in many of my applique quilts, so I have a little pile of orphan pieces waiting for the perfect quilt to be stitched into.
