Stitch Several Blocks Together for a Full-Sized Quilt!
This “Celtic Cross” block is interesting, versatile, and a bit unusual. We also appreciate that the designer shows us how a simple block can become a stunning little quilt.
We love the sunny colors the designer, Janet of Simply Pieced, used in this quilt. It would be equally stunning in other colors, as well.
Making blocks into mini quilts is a great way to expand your quilting skills, as you’ll learn something from each block you tackle. We can see several one-block mini quilts displayed together on a wall.
Plus, by trying out a block before starting a full sized quilt, you’ll have a better idea of whether or not you want to proceed and make enough blocks for a larger quilt.
The finished “Celtic Cross” block, and mini quilt, is 16″ square.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
