Today let's look at the Crossroads America quilt block. It has several other names - City Park, Flower Fields, Galaxy, Night Watch, Under Blue Mountain Skies, etc. That's a bunch! The components of the block aren't difficult so let's get started.
Today let's learn how to piece this lovely star block called Blueberry Pie. With a name like that, what's not to love! It is made with Half Square Triangles, Flying Geese, and squares and I'll walk you through each step for a successful finish. Plus, for some inspiration, there are layout suggestions at the end.
The easy Empire Cross quilt block is a wonderful traditional block that creates wonderful secondary designs when made into a quilt. With only half square triangles, snowballed corners, and rectangles, the block goes together quickly. The classic block only has two colors and a background but I had to make it my own with four colors!
Today let's take a look at my variation of the traditional Star Geese quilt block. The original is a nice block (I'll post a picture later in the tutorial) but I really like how this one looks in a quilt. We're going to be doing a bit of paper piecing but it's an easy unit to do.
