Debbie over at A Quilter’s Table recently hosted a little quilt along with a tutorial for her improv Cross Cut quilt. I think everyone else was about done with theirs by the time I jumped in!
The first step was to cut squares and insert strips.
Then you cut the other way and inserted more strips and sew them all together.
I used several colors of thread for my matchstick quilting.
I was not in love with it, not enough to finish it as a small quilt. I might have liked it better if I had stuck with all white thread.
So after thinking about it, I decided I might as well cut some more.
And did a pretty crappy job of that binding! I was rushing to finish before work. I always get my best ideas during a time crunch!
Anyway, time to add the notebook. This is just a standard black and white composition notebook.
Happily, it fit!
You can find many pics on Instagram of finished quilts under the hashtag #crosscutblocks. Or head over to Debbie’s blog to see some great finishes there.
Have a great day!
