    My Swap Arkansas Crossroads top is finished

    Here's the finished top. I used the 2.5" squares I received in the birthday 'candy' swap... so many great fabrics! My X blocks were done with 4.5" squares. It finished out at 65" x 81". I did 9 rows of 7 blocks, plus the extra half-block border that completes the points. Haven't decided on a quilting pattern yet, but I'm tossing around an idea. Thanks for looking!

    Beautiful! A very modern look but made with older fabrics. Refreshing and unique!

    I love it especially the background fabric - I know you've probably hear that a lot! I also love how you kept the colors in each block in the same family

    this is great! you did a wonderful job...and everyone else is right, that old b&w advertising print really makes this quilt that much more special. really makes the colors pop but adds interest in the background as well...I found myself reading the ads, hehe! thanks for sharing!

    wow, so awesome, this is one on my list for sure after seeing yours. I love it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That is a beautiful quilt. The background looks so good with the squares. Love the pattern.

    Duh...the "x"....i love this - #1piecemaker's DH has been making this pattern and his look so different from this one. His X is always quite bold...and truthfully - stupid me didn't even realize this was the same pattern...i saw the bright colors and the pretty "background" and never even noticed the X......I have got to make one of these.
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    It's a keeper for sure!! You did a nice job on it -- I like that each block is its own color. This is a quilt I definitely want to make -- just have to finish a few first!
