“Double Crossed” Quilt Pattern

$AUD 11.90

I always like quilts that have an interesting pattern, but upon closer observation also reveals another secondary pattern. In my Double Crossed quilt pattern, each block has a cross, but when you put the blocks together, it creates a second cross – hence the name.

The indigo version has the smaller cross as the main contrast, while the African version achieves its contrast with the larger cross.

 

Description

I always like quilts that have an interesting pattern, but upon closer observation also reveals another secondary pattern. In my Double Crossed quilt pattern, each block has a cross, but when you put the blocks together, it creates a second cross – hence the name.

The pattern lends itself to all sorts of fabric choices. I have focussed on different ethnic themes for the two versions I have made (so far). I have one using Japanese indigo, and a smaller version using African fabrics.  When selecting your fabrics, ensure that one of the cross fabrics also complements the rectangles.
