Cross block video tutorial – Colour Fair Down Under QAL

Today we’re doing the third block for our  Colour Fair Down Under QAL: Cross quilt block.

Get the cutting instructions and other directions on page 7 of the pattern.

This block is the easiest block in the quilt. Just pay attention to the placement of the different prints.

What next?

Finish making all the Cross blocks by 4 December.

We’re aiming at having all blocks done before we break for Christmas. It’s possible.
