There’s nothing as quaint as a small town. (Of course, as small town folks ourselves, we may be a tad bit biased!) I’m talking about the kind of place where you can step off your front porch and follow the sidewalk to the library, the park, or the corner bakery. It’s the kind of place where kids can ride their bikes all the way across town and the neighbors are friendly and familiar.

Today’s new tutorial, The Crosswalk Quilt, was inspired by a beautiful line of fabric called Neighborhood. It’s simple and sweet, but intricate and eye-catching all at once.

Here are a few quotes from Mary Fons that we love:

“When life as you know it is torn into a zillion pieces, it just makes sense to tear up fabric into a zillion pieces and then sew it back together again into organized blocks with a nice French-fold binding.” (Source)

“Once the quilt bug bit me, obsession set in.” (Source)
