Kentucky Crossroads ~ Coming Soon!

I recently acquired this lovely old quilt.  I immediately fell in love with this block, and I adore blue and white quilts.  I had to have it!  

When I returned home, I looked for the block in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia and found that this exact block is not in the book.  It's a unique version of the Kentucky Crossroads block.  A perfect name for the quilt, I thought.
The traditional piecing for the block requires a set-in Y seam.  Groan.  So, I drafted the block without a set-in seam.  Yay!
Hoping to have the quilt finished and photographed mid-July.  Pattern very soon afterward.  

It's been such a fun block to piece!!  Start stash diving for a bunch of dark prints that will make terrific blocks.  

Toodles for now.....keep on stitchin'!

  4. Pam, I LOVE that you have made it so there are no set in seams. And as I look at the block I think we will really have to pay attention to the way our HST's are sitting. I love this block and can't wait to see your quilt finished.

  5. It's a really pretty, graphic block. Would be striking in any color and I sure love that classic blue and white.
