Crosswalk - OMG finished

In my first post about this quilt  HERE,  I talked about making tops with pre-cut strips until they ran out.   I also used this first one, Crosswalk,  as my one monthly goal for June, to be quilted and bound, so it wouldn't sit around  for ages unfinished.

I was recently introduced to the 'circles on quilts' templates by Dena Wilkins.  She shares lots of photos of her fabulous ruler work at Living Water Quilter.  My templates arrived quickly and I set about covering this little quilt in circles,  just for practice and fun.

Here is the Crosswalk quilt, 40 x 52, all finished and ready for a child to cuddle under.  The circles are 1 inch apart, poly batting, and the quilt is still cuddly after all that quilting.

Here is the view from the back .....................


I'm sharing with several linky parties this week.  Be sure to visit them to see what other creative quilters are sharing too.

  1. Nice job. I like the contrast of the circles with the block design. Well done!

  2. Hi Kat,
    WOWEE! I love the quilting. I was just going to attempt something similar (although without a ruler). I want to make circles or spirals in alternating blocks, and then diagonal straight lines in the other blocks. I'm going to check out Dena's website and rulers. ~smile~

  6. 1. I love the pattern and the colors.
    2. You are a pro at circle quilting.
    Is it not a giant pain in the neck to stop and start so many times???

  13. Lovely circles and really sets off the pattern well. Maybe templates would be easier than my method of drawing the whole thing with a water erasable pen!
