I’ve long been a fan of a good cross-hatch. First Alexander Henry came out with Heath and I’ve definitely thrown my fair share of it into projects here and there. Then Carolyn Friedlander came out with her wonderful cross-hatch version and now Timeless Treasures has a tone on tone version in every color.
The West Seattle Fabric Company has several colors of the collection. I couldn’t resist these jewel tones. I’m trying to move onto some navy in my work too, though I’m having some difficulty escaping my purple obsession lately and this was good fuel.
I also picked up more of Michael Miller’s cotton couture in teal. This solid is fabulously soft and just seemed to polish off the new additions.
My thought with these crosshatch prints and solids are some mini versions of the Tunnel Vision quilt from the book. I’ve made a mini pillow version with Heath recently and am going to branch out with the other colors offered in this Timeless Treasures collection.
In fact, I’m off to quilt those tops now and make them into pillows with invisible zips. Class coming soon.
We’re in heatwave mode in Seattle, so it’s a good day to sew or maybe visit a nicely air-conditioned fabric shop!
Happy first day of July!
I love the teals and grays in your new blocks. Both are wonderful designs–really vibrant! Thanks for sharing!

Nice fabric choices. Hope to be back to quilting soon. Four weeks on my back is too much, but necessary’
Love you, Joan

I love those mini versions! And I agree, Sketch is a great line. I picked up a few more colors of that when we were at Island Quilter.
Those are beautiful colors! Looking forward to seeing what you create with them, Katie!
I really admire your work….very nice! I’m looking forward to seeing more!

Beautiful! And I’ve been using more navy this year too. There are so many lovely prints right now in navy, many from Dear Stella and I especially love the ones in the Stof Pure line.
