Tips for Great Results with This Classic Quilting Design!

Cross-hatch quilting is a staple for both straight-line and free motion quilting. However, the traditional method of marking for it requires a fair amount of math.

We’ve discovered a great method for marking your quilt without the math. It’s an easy technique that uses paper and a triangle ruler.

Plus, in the following video Jennifer Keltner demonstrates how to set up for straight-line cross-hatch quilting. She also shows how to quilt the design without having to stop and start a new line of stitching at the margins.

In the next video Jennifer Keltner and Vicki Hoth demonstrate a simple way of marking cross-hatch lines – without having to do any math.

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!
