Color Options from American Patchwork & Quilting December 2011
We know you love the quilt projects that appear in American Patchwork & Quilting® magazine. We took inspiration from projects in the magazine and created Web-exclusive versions, complete with full instructions as well as staff color options.
Crossing Point Staff Color Option
Using Mrs. March’s Basic collection from Lecien, design director Nancy Wiles stitched a knitting needle roll-up. To construct the outside of the roll-up, she layered a Cross and Crown block with batting and dark tan print 14-1/2" squares. For the pockets (which will hold knitting and crochet needles up to 14" long), she sewed a half block to a 6-1/2x14-1/2" lining rectangle, then pressed it open so the seam is at the top of the half block. She positioned the half block on the layered outside, lining up raw edges. She quilted 1-1/2" apart through all layers to create pockets, then she added a tie and bound the edges.
