I have spent the weekend going through all my UFO’s sadly there are very many of them, so I have made a decision (I think!) not to start anything new until at least half of these UFO’s are finished. The intention is there, we’ll have to see how I hold up.
This weeks quilt idea is called Criss Cross.
The block layout
This quilt measures 48″ square.
The following links are for
- the fabric requirements (in yards) Criss Cross Fabric requirements
- the rotary cutting info Criss Cross block rotary cutting info
I then changed the colours to give a more autumnal look
This version measures 76″ square.
The fabric requirements are here (again in yards) Criss Cross 2 Fabric requirements
The addition of borders has enlarged the quilt.
The first border requires the fabric to be cut as follows;- for the left and right borders cut 2 borders 48 1/2″ by 2 1/2″ and for the top and bottom cut 2 pieces 52 1/2″ by 2 1/2″
The second border has 2 pieces cut at 52 1/2″ by 1 1/2″ for the left and right borders and 54 1/2″ by 1 1/2″ in cream fabric
The third border in gold the strips are all cut 4 1/2″ wide the left and right require a length of 54 1/2″ and the top and bottom need to be cut at 62 1/2″
The fourth border in cream is again cut at 1 1/2″ wide for the left and right borders the length is 62 1/2″ and the top and bottom 64 1/2″
The fifth and final border is 6 1/2″ wide and (for left and right) 64 1/2″ long and for the top and bottom 76 1/2″
The layout can be changed as shown below. The fabric requirements and border dimensions remain the same.
