Crossroads Quilt Along - Chain Block

Yippee, it's the 15th and that means it is time for another Crossroads Quilt Along post !!!    I am super excited, because today is the last set of blocks, the sixth set, which means we are getting closer to seeing a finished Crossroads Quilt Along quilt!!!.

This month  is the  Chain Block and there are a lot of them, 18 to be exact!!!  So fun :)   But no worries, we used strip piecing to put these together, so even though it looks like a lot of piecing, it goes pretty fast ;)

You know that I am totally loving this Chain Block, as I love all things chains in quilting ;)   I just love the way they connect everything and create such great movement in the quilt ;)     

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 QAL is raising funds for premature babies and Fat Quarter Shop and Moda and All of Us are teaming up to make a big impact!    It is so wonderful to see how much has already been raised!!

And like always,  Kimberly and Joanna , have made a fabulous You Tube video that walks you through making the block step by step.  So if you have never strip pieced or made squares in a square blocks before, you are about to learn something new ;)  

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 Chain Block inspiration :)
