Tutorial Throwback Thursday - Crossroads!!!

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the USA!!!   Today I am feeling so very grateful!!   Since it's Thursday, I was thinking about which project to feature today for our Tutorial Throwback.   And I was hit with just how grateful I am for this incredible Quilting Journey I am on.   I absolutely love this industry and I am blown away by how many amazing opportunities and experiences that have been opened up to me on this journey.   When I started my blog,  I did not expect to be an author, or pattern designer, or published, or anything for that matter, I just wanted a space to share quilts ;)    And it just blows me away how starting that blog became a Crossroad into an entire amazing journey, that I am so incredibly grateful for and am loving each and every day of it!!!   So that is why today, we are throwing back to the Crossroads quilt :)

Crossroads is such a fun quilt to make.   It really has a wonderful geometric designs with fun secondary designed created when the blocks are sewn together.  And it is beginner friendly to experts alike because there are not a whole lot of seams that need to be lined up.   So it's fun and fast.   

And because it is basic block construction, it is easy to change the size as well!!!   This quilt in a 4 x 4 layout finishes at 64" x 64" so a nice lap size quilt.   But I have seen it made as a 5 x 5 quilt that finishes at 80" x 80" for a Picnic size, and also as a 6 x 6 quilt that finishes at 96" x 96", a great Queen/King size.  It looks fantastic no matter what size it is made ;)  

And I love, love, love the fabrics in this quilt!!!   This is Gingham Girls by Amy Smart and it was her debut line.  I just love that it reminds me of all of the homemade dresses and shirts and short sets that my mom used to make for me and my siblings.   Talk about some wonderful memories!!! And Crossroads is made using Charm Packs, and ya, I am super into Charm Packs right now!!!  I just love all of those fun little squares :) 

My Crossroads quilt because a gift for a special bride and groom.   Because it goes together fast and easy, it makes for a great gift!!    I just love being able to give the gift of quilty hugs, they are the best!!!  And that is my Crossroads Quilt ;)  

I hope you have enjoyed today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday!!!    To make your own Crossroads quilt  just click on any of the quilt name links for the free step by step tutorial.    And when you are done, I would love to see your quilt!!  You can email me a picture at, post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc  or or add it to my flickr group here ;)  I can't wait to see your Crossroads quilts!!!

Thanks for popping in today and each day.   I truly am blessed to have this little space to share my absolute love of quilting!!!

I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day and also for all of my friends in the US, a very  Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Perfect 5 Quilts Book and Short Macaroon Quilt!!!

Today I am super excited to share an adorable new finish for the Perfect 5 Quilt Along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop.   I am calling it Short Macaroon and you will soon see why :)  

Perfect 5 Quilts is the newest book from It's Sew Emma.  Yup, they are the same publisher helping me create my Charming Baby Quilts book!!!    Perfect 5 Quilts has 16 quilt designs that are all made from Charm Packs.   And you know I love Charm Packs!!!   And the cool thing is, they even created a Perfect 5 Ruler from Creative Grids to make cutting out all 16 projects quick and easy!! 

So each week of the Perfect 5 Quilt Along focuses on blocks from two projects, and over the 8 weeks you will have enough blocks to make the Perfect 5 Sampler quilt.   How fun is that!!! 

Perfect 5 Quilt Along with the Fat Quarter Shop

I am Week 8 of the Quilt Along so I get to share the Macaroon Block

And the Shortbread Block.    (Hence the name of my quilt, Short Macaroon :)  

Both of the blocks were so fun to make, easy to cut, and turned out so super cute.   I made them using two Wonder Charm Packs by Kate and Birdie for Moda.   Aren't those soft colors and prints just dreamy.  Perfect for a baby quilt ;)

I decided to add sashing and cornerstones because the Macaroon blocks had an awesome "chain" look to them that I wanted to connect that across the quilt.  Because we all know I love "Chain" quilts just as much as Charm Packs :)     And didn't it just make these two blocks come together perfectly!!!  I added a 1" border on the Shortbread blocks so they would finish at the same size as the Macaroon blocks and then just stitched it all together.    So cute!!! 

When it came time to quilt it, I wanted something soft and subtle, just like the Wonder Fabric, so I decided on an all over Curly Q.   I love how it just adds so much movement and wonderfully soft texture.    Seriously, this quilt just kept getting cuter and cuter!!!

 All of the information on this fun quilt along can be found on the Jolly Jabber.   It will go over fabric requirements, each week's blocks, and the single block instructions.  Of course, you will still need the Perfect 5 Book to quilt along for the cutting sizes ;)   

Perfect 5 Quilt Along with the Fat Quarter Shop

And that is my Short Macaroon quilt!!!   It finished at 38" x 38" so it is the perfect size for a baby quilt.  And this quilt already has a special little wee one in mind for it and that just makes me smile.  

Thanks for popping in today and sharing my newest little baby quilt :)

I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!

AccuQuilt Black Friday all Week and GO! Me Giveaway!!

So you all know I am loving sewing all of the curves with the easy cutting of the AccuQuilt Curved Dies.  I had a lot of questions and interest in curved sewing, cutting, and dies after sharing my Nine Patch Fun Quilt, Winding Ways Quilt, and Flowering Snowball Quilt.  And a lot of you mentioned that just like me, you have a lot of these classic curved sewing quilts on your bucket list!!


So I wanted to let you know (enabler alert :)  that AccuQuilt is staring their Black Friday Deals early, and you can get 20% off all GO! Dies starting today!!!   And of course, there are endless selection of Dies, not just the Curved Dies, they are just my favorite ;)

Also, if you have been thinking that you want to try some Curved Dies, or any AccuQuilt Dies for that matter, but don't have a GO! Fabric Cutting System, they are on a Black Friday Deal as well :)   So it's a great time to buy if you were considering this amazing cutting tool.   I shared all about my GO! Fabric Cutter here, and I have been using it for a year now and just love it!!!

And along with these and other early Black Friday Deals, AccuQuilt is also hosting a GO! Quilt for a GO! Me Giveaway!!!   GO! Quilt is AccuQuilt's free program that allows you design your quilt with your chosen fabrics and see what it will look like before you make the first cut.     This is such a cool program for taking the guess work out of choosing fabrics.    You can see all about the GO! Quilt free program here and the GO! Quilt for a GO! Me Contest here :)   Good luck and have fun designing those quilts!!

As for me, I am planning on taking advantage of this pre- Black Friday sales and adding some GO! Cubes Companion Sets (which are on a Black Friday sale!) for Jessi's Sampler project and maybe another curved die or two will slip into my cart as well  ;)   I can't help it, curves are just fun!!!   

So if you were one of those folks that emailed me interested in the curved dies, I hope this little enabler alert is helpful ;) 

And now, I am off to do a little quilting!!
I hope you have a very Happy Quilting day!!
