New Friday Tutorial: The Crosswalk Quilt Tutorial

New Friday Tutorial: The Crosswalk Quilt Tutorial

Make the Crosswalk Quilt using 2.5" Strips and 5" Squares! Free Video Tutorial with Jenny Doan!

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.
