This week we are at the Crossroad Block! This is our third cornerstone block and it features strip piecing and half square triangles.
Week 7 Instructions
This week’s block takes center stage on our medallion quilt and is based on the Crossroad block that is number 1148 in Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.
The instructions are available to download for free through 11:59pm Eastern on Sunday, July 17, 2022. If you miss the free download, you can purchase the Block 5 instructions alone for $2 through 11:59pm Eastern on Thursday, July, 28 2022. The full pattern is available for purchase at any time.
