Hi again ! Today I want to share a new project that I´m working on and it´s sure you have heard lately. First I will tell you I was wishing to get my package with all these nice fabrics with a vintage and childhood touch. I spent time chosing them so it was a pleasure when I could see them in my hands.
They are from the collections : Toy Box, 1930´s Classics, Pam Kitty Picnic, Aunt Grace Miniatures, Old New Fabric Collection 30', Everything but the kitchen sink X, Storybook Playtime, Vintage Happy....... So with these beauties I took my Big Shot and started to cut .....
My plans were different at the begining but then I found the sew along Scrappy Crossroads by Lori Holt ( Bee in my bonnet ) for this summer .If you are a vintage girl and love patchwork, you know her , sure. That is my case, I love Lori Holt work and like instagramer I went to there I learnt about her scrappy crossroads tutorial soooo easy and perfect for my loved fabrics.
It looks like the block is being done for lot of quilters and you can find vartiations because the fabric combination.
So I took my Sizzix Bigz XL 25" Die - Squares, 2" Finished (2 1/2" Unfinished just the size that the tuto calls, and cut a bunch of them. You will need too 4.5" squares , mine are white.
I spent some time playing with my squares on a mini design board ( you can find Lori ´s tutorial in her blog if you like ) and sew quickly.
Here it is my first block finished. I plan doing three more and complete a quilt.
I´m in love with this scrappy block and my die that let me to save time.
Go to Instagram and then to " beelori1" if you want to try too.
Thanks so much to Lori Holt for this tutorial and much of them you can find in her blog.
