Arkansas Crossroads

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The edges of the body of the quilt, where I made rectangles that created the 4 fabric diamonds around the edge. I also used the backing fabric that I cut off after quilting for the binding. Because the backing was pieced, it made the binding more interesting, I was assured it would be long enough, and I didn't waste any material. I'm also proud that, for once, I actually made something for me. I have given all my other quilts away. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Directions for this quilt are usually for one block that incorporates 2 four patches and 2 of the diagonal block. I made 2 different blocks, one of 16 patches and one of 4 of the diagonal blocks joined to make an X. I think my way is easier.
