Carolina Crosroads Progress

I finally pieced the blocks for my Carolina Crossroads quilt! My hubby wasn't home to hold up the quilt top for a photo, so I just had to lay it across the couch. I'm not sure if I will be putting a border on it or not. It is now residing with my other quilt tops that are waiting to be quilted. I like the way the top turned out. I would love to have it finished by July 4th since it has the patriotic feel. Hmmmmm I wonder! I understand that Bonnie Hunter is planning on another Mystery quilt. Will I be able to resist the temptation? Time will tell!


I have my second block for the Civil War Diary quilt made, Alarming Conditions. I love pink and brown together! Two more blocks are ready to be pieced. I think I will work a little on one, but the Monster is calling my name today! It is asking to please be released from the living room. That won't happen unless I spend a lot more time on it that is for sure!

Loving your Carolina Crossroads. It's been great fun to see all the different colour choices and the odd different setting.

Your Carolina Crossroads is easily in my top 5 favorites! And your CW block is gorgeous. Great colors!

Your CCR quilt is beautiful...I LOVE the CWDQ block. The pink and brown are wonderful. Speaking of pink and brown, MY monster wants to get out of the hoop too. I have been pounding at it. The motifs are very tedious....LOTS of teeney tinny feathers to turn and twist. In the end it will be worth it...I hope!

This is killing me! I see one Carolina Crossroad with sashing and I think "I want sashing!" but then I see one without sashing (like yours) and I think "I'll do it without sashing!" I am soooo confused.

Lovely block - such a great colour combo. And hurray - you got your CC top done - it is brilliant. I'm still ploughing away at mine - shouldn't be too long now..

I absolutely love your Carolina Crossroads!! It is fantastic and has that July 4 feel for sure. I also really like the brown and pink combo. The block is great!

Mar, your crossroads quilt top is beautiful! I was so surprised when I saw it finished! It took me 2 months to get my quilt top sewn together!!! I'll bet the Monster is feeling left out and jealous about now. The pink and brown block is beautiful, too.
Great job!
