Earlier this year I had a new pattern published in Modern Patchwork. This quilt started with trying to enlarge the patchwork of the crosses English paper piecing design into a pieced quilt block. It did not work exactly like I thought it would but ended up creating a new block!
The surprise and bonus that came from the original block was the secondary pattern that was made by connecting 4 blocks, a sawtooth star turned on point in black and white. The picture below shows the blocks before they are attached.
Each block measures 24″, with the whole quilt measuring 72″ x 72″. One block could make a mini quilt or table topper. A smaller quilt could be made using 4 blocks. So many possibilities and versatility with this pattern.
Almost all fabrics are Indah batiks by Me + You made by Hoffman Fabrics. I wanted the fabrics to feel like solids and these batiks worked perfectly. I kept the quilting simple with straight lines.
