Crossed Paths Quilt

Hi there,


These weeks are rolling past so quickly I'm struggling to keep up with blog posts about my magazine commissions!


The February issue of Quilt Now is out this week, but I haven't gotten around to telling you about my quilt in the January issue yet!


Crossed Paths Quilt (Quilt Now Jan18)

60" x 60"


This is Crossed Paths, made completely from Spectrum Solids by Makower.


In quilt design, the terms 'advanced' or 'technical' can be quite subjective, depending on which part of the quilt the term refers to.


For example, a quilt can look 'uncomplicated' due to the fabrics used, but the piecing technique may require complete accuracy or many instructions.

At the other end of the spectrum, a quilt can look cleverly complicated with really straightforward piecing.


Crossed Paths falls somewhere in between!  The repeating 15" blocks are based around 2 elements:  (1) Foundation pieced quadrants are made separately, papers removed then pieced around the central square using (2) a partial seam (tutorial on partial seams coming soon!).




However, close attention must be paid to the cutting instructions and fabric placement, to achieve the gradation of background from dark to light and the reverse gradation of the 'crossed paths'.


This is a quilt where lots of labels and plastic bags are recommended to keep yourself organised!

So if you like making quilts with a little more 'bite' then this one's for you!
