Can you believe I’ve made it to 100 Sunday sketches?! Almost two years of consistently posting a new quilt design, week after week… wow. Thanks for following along!
A few weeks ago, Sunday sketch #95 featured big stars enclosing the traditional sawtooth star quilt block. I like the idea of creating a traditional block almost inadvertently through the placement of other pieces in a quilt design. So I pursued that direction for awhile, and came up with this week’s criss-cross design.
Overlaid crosses create the sawtooth star in the middle of each block. There are lots of ways to colour this design to emphasise different parts.
This design would be fairly easy to translate into a quilt pattern using squares, rectangles and triangles.
