How to: Crossroads to Jericho Quilt Block - 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks

After I designed the scrappy version of Thirteen Squares yesterday I was totally in a vintagey (is that even a word?) mood! I had to create another vintage inspired quilt. So, today I'll be teaching you how to make:
 Crossroads to Jericho


Cutting:
(this block will finish at 12" square)
Scrappy prints - 5 - 3 1/4"x3 1/4" squares
1 - 6 7/8" square, cut in half diagonally
(if you want the large corners to be different prints like my illustration, you will need two different print triangles.)
White fabric - 4 - 3 1/4"x3 1/4" squares
1 - 6 4/8"x6 7/8" square, cut in half diagonally

Sewing:
9 patch center blocks
Sew one print 3 1/4" block and two white 3 1/4" block together, as shown in the illustration above.
Press toward the print.
Sew two print 3 1/4" squares and one white 3 1/4" square together, as shown in the illustration above.
Press towards the prints.
Sew two of these units.
Sew three units from above together, as shown in the illustration above.
Press.
Sew one of the 6 7/8" print triangle to each side of the 9 patch block.
Press toward the triangles.
Sew the two white 6 7/8" triangles to the remaining two sides of the block.
Press toward the white fabric.
To make the quilt 96" square you will need to make 64, 12" blocks.
Fabric needed:
White - 4 5/8 yards
Assorted prints - 5 1/4 yards

Hope you all enjoy! I'll be back tomorrow with another quilt block, click here to see all of the blocks so far.

  2. Sigh. Stop making awesome things that make me want to drop everything and make them!

    I love how in the finished quilt it looks like an hour glass block, 9 patch, and white square, but aren't made that way.
