Meet the Vintage Quilt Revival Quilts: Cross Point Quilt

Cross Point Quilt, Pattern from Vintage Quilt Revival : Fresh Lemons Quilts

Today I’m sharing my third project from Vintage Quilt Revival, the Cross Point Quilt.

This quilt is loosely inspired by medallion quilts, with the design focus being on the center of the quilt. The blocks are placed on point.

For the quilting, I decided to quilt pebbles in the grey area and free motion meander in the white area. I won’t lie, the pebbles took a long time! I did a corner a day over a 4 day period.

I just really love this block. Here’s a scrappy version I made during testing. It is a paper pieced block.

The last week has been pretty exciting, watching the book pop up here and there. Besides being available in my shop, you can also find it now shipping from Lee, Katie, Fat Quarter Shop, The Intrepid Thread, Barnes and Noble, Walmart…not sure what’s taking Amazon so long but it’s still listed as a “pre-order” there.

So that’s it! Three shares down, three to go! I can’t wait to show you the rest!

    This quilt is beautiful! I cannot wait to receive my book to start making them all myself. I pre ordered your book through Amazon weeks ago but it is not due to be sent to me until March 2014!!! A long time but well worth the wait.

    The quilt is fantastic! I love the clean lines and the navy and orange combo. The scrappy pink version is so cute, too!

    This is a beautiful quilt. Color combo is really nice, and the quilting – wish I could that! This quilt let’s me know what quilting book I will be buying next. So many quilts to make, so little time………

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    I particularly like this quilt pattern. It reminds me of comfort. It’s a visual sanctuary.

    It’s beautiful in both your two color designs, and visions of other color schemes are dancing through my head.

    This is a keeper!

    What fun! You know, I’ve been struggling with these really complex (for me, anyway!) pieced blocks for a BOM that I’ve been working on this year, and then every time I come over to your blog I am so drawn to the strong graphic design impact of what seem to be less complicated blocks. It’s almost like the blocks get cluttered when there are too many pieces of different fabric in them. I think for next year, I’m going to challenge myself to make some pared-down, more modern looking quilts. I need the sense of accomplishment that comes from finishing something (rather than working on one project for an entire year), and I also really love how modern quilts leave so much negative space that is perfect for developing and showing off free-motion quilting. So, I’d better put some SOLID fabrics on my Christmas list this year!

    Love this quilt!!! Can this block be assembled traditionally , or is PP really the way to go?
    I ordered the book from amazon a few months ago, and was given a January due date, which is fine. Can’t wait to start in the new year!

    It was fun to see the quilts from the book at Quilt Guild the other night. Thanks for sharing.

    Also tell your daughter how impressed I was with her quilts but also getting up in front of all of us and sharing.

    Enjoy the holidays.

    I am so loving all the quilts that you have all made for your book. It is time to order a copy for me. This quilt especially has caught my eye and I want to make it.

    What a great block (as a Swiss, I have a thing for crosses) and great give aways, too.

    I LOVE THIS! What a fantastic combination. I love to piece and this would be fun. I am encouraged by your machine quilting of the pebbles – stay the course – it was worth it!

    I just bought your book on Amazon and can’t wait to get it!!! It is beautiful and the patterns are just addicting. I have been a traditional quilter and have been bitten by the modern movement this last year. Have tried some art quilts in the last year or so too. Just as I did when I started quilting, my biggest challenge is fabric selection. I have having to re-learn fabric choices for the modern look. What inspires you with these choices…how do you go about choosing this fabulous look??

      Hi Lisa! Thank you so much! I think fabric selection is one of the hardest parts of quilting. I love to play with my fabric in my stash, making stacks here and there. (That can also be done at your local quilt shop :)) You can check out color websites like Design Seeds – for inspiration. Or even take a piece of fabric with tons of colors that you love, and pull fabrics based on the individual colors in that design. I hope that helps!
