In my earlier post I have shared the finished Cross Tile Quilt – pattern by Emily of Quilty Love. I was so happy with the result that I wanted to make another one. This is Cross Tile Quilt Variation :
I did not want to piece a new quilt exactly the same, but it should be very similar and matching. So I decided to swap the cross in the block center for a simple log cabin-like square feature. The fabrics used and the block outline are the same as in the original quilt, but the “block inside” is different.
I have also added only a square to the sashing – instead of a cross in the original pattern :
Matching quilts mean matching quilting – straight lines (mostly) one inch apart using the walking foot :
Matching quilts mean matching backing – used the same fabrics for both quilts (luckily bought enough material during my last visit in Prague) :
and the same fabrics for binding of both quilts – Kona solid in silver .
Here the two quilts in comparison :
Quilt size : 62″ x 78″ / Block size : 14″ x 14″
