My place to be creative

Creative Week 32


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. 

Criss Cross


Criss Cross Block

The block layout

This quilt measures 48″ square.

The following links are for

I then changed the colours to give a more autumnal look

Criss Cross 2a

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.
