Crossroads Quilt Along ~ House Blocks

Crossroads Quilt Along House Blocks
Welcome to the Crossroads Quilt Along benefiting March of Dimes with Fat Quarter Shop and Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts! If you haven't heard about the Crossroads Quilt Along, let Kimberly and Joanna tell you more about it in their new video here

Today the first block for the quilt along is being introduced. The block is the house block. The Crossroads quilt blocks are FREE to download on the 15th of every month starting in February 2016. They only ask a suggested donation of $5 to their March of Dimes campaign for each time you download our patterns.

Love these blocks. The are simple and sew up quickly.I am using the quilt kit made for the quilt along. Although you don't have too. The fabric requirements are HERE

I spent the weekend cutting and organizing. Honestly, it's not how I usually work when I make a quilt. But I really should! It's so efficient. I organized mine into ziploc bags and then put those into a small plastic storage container.

fun and organized weekend sewing
This is a shot I shared on Instagram. See how organized I am?! :) What a great way to work. One of my goals is to work more efficiently.

You are organized :)! I have so many projects on the go, my sewing table is hard to cut on at the moment, but I have finally chosen my fabric for this wonderful Crossroads Sew Along and am looking forward to starting on my blocks too. Your blocks are beautiful!
