Bundles of shot cottons purchased at International Quilt Festival inspired Marianne’s update of traditional Album Cross blocks. A friend, who’d recently taken a web design class, noticed the block’s resemblance to online checkboxes and, voilà, this quilt had a name. If you’re looking for fat quarter quilts, Checkboxes might be your final stop. To learn more trimming these quilt blocks, take a look at the Sew Easy quilting lesson on how to make a template to trim your Album Cross blocks. For visual instructions on how to use the Album Cross Template, watch the quilting video tutorial, Sew Easy: How to use the Album Cross Template.
