Criss Cross So Easy
I am so glad I took the time to organize all my Lori Holt fabric. It was a big undertaking but so worth the outcome.
I recently started to make one of Lori's Sew from your Stash Series quilts called Criss Cross Star. Prepping for this quilt was so easy because of the way I had my fabric organized. I needed 4 1/2" blocks and 3 1/2" blocks. I simply went to my 5" strips and cut a 4 1/2" piece and turned one side and cut it down to 4 1/2 square. Then I went to my 3 1/2 ' strips and cut one 3 1/2 inch block. I had everything cut and ready to go in no time.
Here is one of my Criss Cross Star Blocks, so easy and scrappy fun!
I have been collecting Lori Holts fabric for several years now, so it's fun to see old pieces mixed with new ones.
Here are all my blocks on my design wall. I guess I need a bigger design wall, the last row is on the floor.
I always like to put my blocks on my design wall, study them, and then leave the room for a bit. When I came back into my room I thought it might look more interesting if I offset the blocks instead of them sitting right on top of each other.
Once I added one block size piece to the end of each row, sewing them on opposite ends it created a different look. I am so happy with the way it turned out. I have a fun binding in mind to add once it's quilted.
I am already imagining this quilt with my Bonnie and Camille stash and using Aqua as my background.
Aren't my wildflowers fun?
Stay safe and sew on!
