Noteworthy Arkansas Crossroads Quilt (#53)

Déjà vu ... obviously I really like Sweetwater's Noteworthy collection ... this is my third quilt using it and I have two more to go!

Noteworthy is a modern and none traditional group of fabrics.  Combining their love of Pinterest (a pre-occupation with "Bucket List's") and memories of doodling - Sweetwater designers incorporate swirls and scribbles to perfection.

Every muted color of the rainbow is here, making it the perfect quilt to sew for friends ... it's so easy to like.  Quilted with Aurifil 50wt. Light Sand on the top, Mint Ice on the bottom - this wavy line grid pattern gets all crinkly after washing and still looks good on the minky back.

What is also fun to see is how using different colors in this "Arkansas Crossroads" quilt pattern changes the vibe of each blanket - below is Terrain by Kate Spain, Noteworthy & Oh Deer by Moda.

 Whether the colors are strong or soft - this pattern is my favorite.  For tutorial links and tips how to make an Arkansas Crossroads quilt: HERE  is my earlier post.
