Kiss-cross Quilt Top

I’m not sure why this quilt top has been hanging around finished, photographed and not blogged about for so long. I sometimes think I’ll hold a finish, or semi-finish for a slow news month and I must’ve forgotten completely about it.

Excepting for now when I’m making my goals for 2019 and it comes up on my (long) list of quilts to be finished.

This quilt is made from a pattern from an Australian Handmade magazine issue and is designed by MsMidge. Her version can be seen here.

The pattern is designed for charm squares which suited me down to the ground and I teamed them with an indigo chambray background that I found locally.

The quilt top finishes at around 42 x 48 inches.

Happy sewing


  1. I love the movement in the blocks! The indigo chambray is a great frame for the bright colors.

  2. This is beautiful! It's a fun pattern, too, I haven't see it before. I really like your dark sashing against the bright blocks.

  3. It reminds me of stained glass windows. I don't know if that's the vision you have but great job!

  4. This is a very cool quilt design, I love how the prints pop up around the x's and plus signs.

  5. Great choice for your background color! It really sets off the fabrics in those charm squares. Can't believe you forgot about this cute quilt! Thanks for finding it again and sharing it on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  6. I love how the indigo background let's the charm fabrics pop!
