Crossroads Block...

Last month I told you about our Yo-Yo Mama's project that we are working on together...if you forgot...you can go HERE to read about it.....
long story short, we exchanged 2 1/2" squares and we are all doing something different with them.

So I've had a little bit of time to work on mine...

It feels great to be able to work on something that I can show you!















I'm making a crossroads block that finishes 16 inches square....



This is what the blocks look like with 4 together... I am making 16 blocks total for my quilt. I"m going to skip putting on a border and just bind it after the quilting is complete. The quilt will finish 64" x 64" and I am making it for my kitchen table.
I'm really pleased with the way that it's turning out...very scrappy and vintagey looking...my favorite kind of quilt!

I stumbled on this while checking our your blog today, May 2013. I have almost finished my quilt like this for oldest grandchild graduating this month. Love the way it looks with the white crossroads. I think this is an old pattern, originally Arkansas Crossroads maybe? Do you know the origin? Thanks for your beautiful quilts & inspiration!
