Friends, I apologize for posting a little early for May, but I'm going to be away for several days, so better early than late, eh?

This month we'll be using the Kona Crossing pattern by JaceyCraft on the Robert Kaufman site: www.robertkaufman.com/quilting/quilts_patterns/kona_cross...

Kona Crossing blocks by aquilterstable

Jacey's pattern makes 15 1/2" blocks, and I'm asking for just one from each of you. I've made 3 blocks in each of three background colors - Kona Midnight, Aqua, and Ochre. Crosses are made with those same colors, shades of the same, with the add-ins of Pink Flamingo and even a few scraps of teal-green.

The pattern is of course, for an entire quilt, and in making just one block, here's what you'll need to cut:

* 9 - 5 1/2" squares background fabric - Please make these all the same and in one of the colors I used - dark blue, aqua, or gold. If you have a Kona color card, check that your background color coordinates well with the colors of my blocks.

* 9 pairs 1 1/2" x 6" strips - Each pair will be used to make one small cross block. I actually didn't cut 6" lengths, but used longer strips I trimmed as needed during construction. Do what works best for you.

Your block can have nine different colored crosses, though some duplication in color would be fine, like I have done. Please use at least 3-4 colors for your crosses though, in shades of dark blue, aqua, and gold. Feel free to add in Pink Flamingo or any peachy-pink, as well as teal-green, but don't feel like you have to. I've used all solids, and that would be my preference, but if you don't have what will work, feel free to use tone on tones. A little white or neutral in a print would be fine, but please have any prints read as a single color.

Refer to Jacey's pattern for block construction. I think you'll find this a fun, quick block. Let me know if you have any questions, ok?
