February Criss Cross Block

I can not believe that it is almost February and our bee is almost done!
I have had such a hard time trying to decide what I wanted to do for my month. It has been super cold here in South Dakota and with day time temps at -20 with out wind chill I have been dreaming of green grass, warm sunshine and picnics with my kiddos. So this month we will be making a fun bright block for me to make into a picnic quilt.
The block I choose is the Criss Cross Quilt block and we will be using Oh Cherry Oh fabric from a few years ago. I have been hoarding them for the perfect project! The pattern for the block can be found here

I will be sending enough fabric to make 1 block. I would like to keep the prints together in each corner as shown in the picture above. No need to trim your final block as I will trim them when I receive them all back. If you have any questions just let me know. Thank you so much and have fun!! Also if you are waiting for a block from me they will be sent with your fabric this weekend. Sorry for the delay!!!!


  1. kristen,
    i love this block! and your fabrics are certainly bright and cheery~

  2. So pretty! Please tell me about the "bee." I am not up to speed. By the way, all my grandparents lived in North Dakota, so sort of in your neck of the woods.

  3. Looking forward to it! Great block!

  4. Nice fabric! It is very bright and cheery, I agree!
