If you participated in the Cloud9 New Block Blog Hop, then you’ve seen Berry Cross and you know how versatile it is! For the quilt along, I’ll be offering instructions for these three options and one size: 48” x 60”.
My last quilt along was fun and friendly and I know this one will be too! There is a private Facebook group and a Flickr group you can join to share in-progress photos, get and receive encouragement, and to ask questions. You can join these groups anytime now and start sharing your excitement and ideas about the quilt along. I hope you’re excited because I sure am!
I know you have other quilt projects, but to make this quilt along more fun, I’m offering the first of many prizes—your choice of a free downloadable pattern from my shop and a free copy of the downloadable version of Berry Cross as soon as it’s ready! You have several chances to win, but you must act by midnight EST on October 6th.
