About this Quilt

quilt-kentucky-crossroads-flat

Revisit a little Civil War history with Nancy Mahoney’s gorgeous quilt made with the time-honored Kentucky Crossroads block. During the Civil War, Kentucky struggled to maintain neutrality. Yet, being a border state with proximity to the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers made Kentucky strategically significant to both sides of the battle.

While there are many adaptations of the Kentucky Crossroads block, Nancy’s design showcases both contrast and variety. Using batiks from the Timeless Treasures Tonga Stonewash collection, this quilt adds a touch of elegance to any decor.

You’ll have this quilt made in a jiffy with our timesaving cutting tip and straightforward instructions. The large 16” blocks make for a swift finish.

This pattern is versatile enough to work for many styles. How about a quilt made with simple black and white fabrics? Or you’ll never lose with a quilt that uses your favorite team colors. A time-proven quilt block along with Nancy Mahoney’s bold design is certain to be a family favorite.
