Hooray! It’s pattern release day! These days are always my favorite, it’s full of excitement, fun pictures and the payoff of a job well done—not just for me, but for all of the pattern testers that worked hard to get this pattern to where it is today. Today, I am pleased to present to you my latest quilt design, Crossroads. This is my first pattern that isn’t a “one size fits all.” The pattern includes instructions for a baby, throw, or twin size! But that’s enough chatter—let’s take a look at all the fun photos and details of Crossroads!

Here’s the overall—isn’t it just lovely in it’s natural habitat?
I think the real charm of this pattern is the simplicity! Not only is it easy to make, but using only two fabrics can really create a dramatic look! If you need help choosing those two colors, make sure to read up on using a color wheel!
I initially created this pattern for my friend who was expecting a baby. She and her husband decided to torture us all & not find out the gender! So, the original intent was for this quilt to be gender neutral, straightforward, and modern. After creating it, I realized that this baby sized quilt lends itself so well to all sorts of uses!
It makes a great boy’s or men’s quilt because it is not too cluttered and the crosses create a strong geometry. But, if you switch up the fabrics, it can be hopelessly girly! So, I made this pattern available for Baby, Throw, and Twin sizes. All of these sizes have been tested to assure a perfect pattern, every time!
