May 20th: Simple Cross Quilt Progress!

Current obsession: making as many Simple Cross blocks as I can in one day! Today’s record is five in one afternoon! Woo!

This has become quite an unexpected Work-In-Progress that I’m thoroughly enjoying! I love rummaging through my basket of solid fabrics and choosing the next bright colour to work with and then matching it with a fab print fabric!

I can’t decide whether to keep it as a simple nine block lap quilt (as it is now) or to keep adding more blocks to it turning it either into a 16 block quilt or a 20Β toΒ 24 block mega quilt! What do you think?? I would love your opinion! Currently the quilt top measures: 32″ (82cm) squared without the blocks being pieced together…

To be honest, I really wouldn’t mind turning it into a 20 to 24 block quilt… The block is super simple and deadly quick to cut and whip up. And goodness knows I have enough fabric to do the job! Even now I have a bunch of print fabrics in mind that could go so well with the rest of the aesthetic this quilt top has going for it! Yay! Such fun!

Looking forward to hearing your suggestions!

Happy Sewing, Friends!

  1. Hi Amanda, I enjoy your blog a lot. I’m looking at your cross block thinking that it would be a good easy block for my quilt group. ( Glenelg Quilters) As not all the ladies make pieced blocks this looks ideal! Would you be kind enough to give me the measurements that you used. Thanks Robyn, Adelaide

  2. Hi Amanda,
    I think you should go for a 20 or 24 block quilt. I’d love to see what other fun color combinations you come up with for each block. Connie
