Arkansas Cross Road FREE Pattern

I created a quick pattern that we will be using in our quilt group.

If you are not in the group, consider making one to donate to someone in your community!  Let someone know you care.

    1. I have made several of these myself and my quilt ministry has made several. It is a great way to use up scrap and I love the way it looks! Enjoy making yours!

    1. This is a great quilt to use up fabric scraps. If you click on "Arkansas Crossroads quilt pattern" above the picture, a PDF pattern should open. If it doesn't, let me know.

  3. Love this! Our group, Sew and Reap, makes quilts for veterans and people with severe health issues. This will be a perfect pattern to use our smaller sized fabric donations! Thank you!!!

  4. I am working on this quilt for a family reunion - each person in the family sent in a fabric representative of themselves. I am ready to square up my blocks and am wondering what the finished blocks to square up to.

  5. Thank you SO much for sharing this pattern...I love it! Sorry to be dumb but I'm a bit confused on step 5? "Make 2 rows of 12 squares and 2 rows of 16 squares". Is this using the 4-patches created in step 1? Thanks for your help!

    1. I had to think about that and I agree with you it is confusing. I am not a pattern writer and sometimes I leave out things that seem obvious to me. I haven't looked at this pattern for a long time. Step 5 is making the inner border strips that you will use after the rest of the quilt is put together. The two that are 12 squares using pieces made in Step 4 will be the top and bottom. The 16 plus white squares added to the end will be the sides. Hope that helps.
