I was thinking I would link up to the Modern Mini Challenge with the mini below over at Ellison Lane Quilts…until I realized that it had to be made within the last 6 months. Since this one is older than that, I’m not going to link up, instead I thought I would simply share it with you. I love this quilt as this one helped me determine the final layout for my Quilted Crossroads – pattern now available on Craftsy.
I had two different blocks in mind when I was designing Quilted Crossroads, and whipping them up and seeing them made and quilted is what helped me decided on the final layout.
Sometimes it is hard to believe I went from the first picture to the second picture, but I do love both versions of the design. The mini currently lives in my daughter’s room. When I took the quilt down to photograph it at nap time she said to me “you can’t leave an empty hole in my wall, I need my quilt!” I don’t think I have ever received a better compliment!
