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.

Today is a good day, I am in my happy place at the sewing machine. My machine is cleaned and oiled, with a new needle and I am ready to go. I plan to get busy finishing the flying geese units for the final border on my Vintage Nine Patch Quilt.
