    What a pleasing quilt. You just have to keep looking at all the different fabric in the squares. (If you get tired of it, I'll gladly give it a "home".

    I think I see a big order for strips cut at 2" through DNL fabrics....... ok, I know it is cheating, but oh my, over 500 squares? :lol: :lol: :lol:

    The colors are great--I love your quilt top. Just now made copies of your pictures for my "great ideas" wall board. Thanks for sharing.

    Deb,

    Here's the block pattern: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art23986.asp

    Also, if you Google Arkansas Crossroads Quilt, there are several sites to look at.

    Thanks for the compliment!

    This is a great pattern. I've got it downloaded, printed out, and in my "get-er-done" folder. When I was about 12 or 13, I made a Roman Stripe that had thousands of pieces. I poked it away at my mothers house. Then my sister found it, quilted it, and gave it to my daughter when she was 12 or 13. It's one of her favorites. I need to get her to take a photo of it. Wasn't one scrappy project enough for me? Sara

    Chele:
    I just love it! I'm BIG on scrappy and this one really appeals to the scrappy in me. This will be my great motivation piece for the day! Thank you.

    Hi Saravincent:
    You mentioned the Roman Stripe and that piqued my interest as I had seen one years ago...I have my Roman Stripe blocks just about completed. Thanks for reminding me that I like that block pattern and Chele, again, I LOVE your Arkansas Crossroads and have it in my next scrap quilt TO DO file.

    Thanks!

    I missed this post back in November. This is such a neat quilt!! I saw this quilt done using 1930's retro prints in a recent Fon's & Porter's magazine. I was just looking under scrappy quilts in a search & found your neat quilt. Did you end up quilting it yourself?? Did you take a photo?? I'd like to see how you quilted it. Great quilt!

    Chele, I love you quilt! Yours looks like a lattice fence running through a garden. I like the red, too!

    That turned out really nice, Chele. I can't imagine cutting all those 2" squares though. You go, girl!
