Crossroads to Texas – Finished

I had to look back when I originally made this quilt top, and it was the end of summer 2019. So here we are, a few years later, and it’s done! Some quilts just take time.

This block is Crossroads to Texas. I saw an old quilt years ago made with it and created my own version. I’m sure a pattern exists somewhere, but I haven’t seen it.

Most of the fabric is original Cotton + Steel with some other random scraps mixed in.

I intentionally made it very scrappy because that was the look I was going for. Sometimes I like a more uniform, matching look in my quilts, but more times than not I like a scrappy quilt.

While it’s a scrappy quilt, the thing that ties it together are the colors. I stuck to pinks and blues with some teal and aqua mixed in. Love these colors!

Like the front, the back of the quilt is scrappy. I had a large piece of Cora fabric by Tessie Fay that’s in the center, and a big piece of Parson Gray I used for the top and bottom.

The piece along the left side is the Friends fabric Joann Fabrics had a few years ago. Still love that fabric!

And that’s a wrap on this quilt!

It took time to finish this one but I think it was worth the wait.

  1. Love this quilt! Love all your quilts. My favorite are scrappy quilts—not always made all from scraps. I, to nearly always limit my color palette.
