Usually when I think of the word crosshatch….. I think of crosshatch quilting, a gorgeous, but tedious quilting design. But now, there’s a new crosshatch in town and it’s a quilt pattern by Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio:

Every time Shea designs a pattern, I know that means that I get to quilt several quilts. I like to try to come up with different ways to quilt each quilt, just to keep it a little interesting!
This quilt was a little tricky to quilt since every….freaking….piece is diagonal. Diagonal lines are always a little hard for me. Not to mention that it makes it a little difficult to make my way around the quilt. But by the end of the fifth quilt, I finally figured out a routine….but at this point I don’t even think I could remember how I did it!
But even though these quilts gave me a little bit of a headache (and I say that in the most lovingly way possible!), I am thrilled with how they turned out. Don’t you just love the back of quilts…I do!
The pattern for this quilt is available at The Fat Quarter Shop!
