About this Quilt

quilt-cross-check-flatStrip piecing makes short work of the big blocks in this intriguing throw. With a colorful collection of 2½“ pre-cut strips, and a few extras, you’ll be ready to begin.

Don’t be intimidated by this complex-looking quilt. The blocks are made from Four-Patch, Nine-Patch, and units that are all quickly pieced from simple strip sets. Our instructions and tips will help you arrange and piece your strips to zip you through the process.
