Kay M Capps Cross loves black and white, and sometime she adds a pop of color…. almost any color! Many designers will move to a black and white quilt at some point, but for Kay, black and white is her mainstay and really sets her creative spirit free. Her quilts are sometimes geometric, sometimes wonky, sometimes arty, but they will always catch your eye and give you something interesting to look at.
Jailhouse Row is a fun wall hanging. The cats are paper pieced and can be left as is (just black on a white background) or you can embellish away and dress them up. Kay says this is an easy quilt, so start sewing and pretty soon all you’ll have all your kitties in a row.
Grab your scraps or use a favorite panel, either way this quilt-as-you-go project will finish quickly. Strong straps (‘cuz they go all the way around the bottom of the bag) and a very roomy interior (it holds a 24″ cutting mat!) will make this Scrap Bag your favorite large (we’re talking huge!) tote.
Paper pieced crisp points and the gold color turn an ordinary pine tree into “Royaltry“. Be daring and try silk to make it elegant. The border adds a special touch of interest.
Posy Set #1 is the first of four sets of posy patterns. Finish them all and you will have a 56″ x 74″ quilt full of posies. Choose your accent color to match your room.
Be sure to check out the book Black & White Quilts by Design. It includes a dozen patterns for a range of experience levels, with clear instructions for applique and paper piecing. Browse all the Cross Cuts patterns and you will also notice that several projects are suitable for scraps.
