Vintage Crosses Quilt Sew Along

I wanted to mention how I cut the triangles from your scrap fabrics. In this little video I show how I cut my triangles, using my scrap fabrics to get a lot of variation in fabrics.

 

I hope you enjoyed the video and your cross blocks are coming along nicely, l am looking forward to seeing all your pictures.

Happy Stitching

Sharon

There is a lot of information to cover, I will be re-making the entire quilt. I will be doing tutorial based blog posts for each part of the quilt top.

You will need to purchase a copy of the Vintage Crosses pattern, there are already many of you with this pattern, but if you do not here are a couple of places you can find it. 

Le Patchwork d'Emma in France has printed patterns and on my website, you can purchase downloadable PDF patterns
