Crossroads Quilt Along - Family Block

Yesterday was the 15th and you know what that means.  Another Crossroads block!!!  I am super happy to share the fourth set of the Crossroads Quilt Along blocks.  This month it is the Family Block and aren't they just so great!!!

Oh my goodness, these were so much fun to make up.  So many lovely points to line up and I just love how small these block are.   8" blocks equals lots of practice on lining up all of those seams just right ;)    And I just continue to love the beautiful Strawberry Fields Revisited prints.  The colors are just so soft!!!

If you sewing along or want to join in on the fun,  you can download the block pattern right here and then don't forget to donate the $5.00 for the pattern to the March of Dimes  ;)  This is such an awesome cause and makes me smile every time I am working on these to think of how much good is being done through this project!! 

And of course, , if you are a little nervous about getting all of those pretty points to line up, you need not worry as Kimberly and Joanna have made a fabulous You Tube video.  It is going to share lots of wonderful tidbits to help you along building your blocks :)

And be sure to share all of your Crossroads progress on social media with #crossroadsquiltalong and check out these fabulous bloggers who are quilting along for some Family Block inspiration :)
