Interlocking cross quilt finished!

Remember this old thing from more than five months ago? My first foray into an all solids quilt, the interlocking cross quilt that I'd been dying to make for ages.

Finally finished!

And the back:

I feel like I've overcome my fear of solids with this project, I always seemed to focus on patterned fabric, yet I love modern style. Really in love with this quilt, I just wish it was bigger so I could use it on our king bed! 

The finished quilt measures 48 inches square, the squares are 3 inches (cut size). The fabrics are nothing fancy, they're all from Spotlight. The orange is actually a true orange but comes up a bit redder in the photos. 

Definitely keen to try more solids quilts....maybe some triangles are on the cards!


  1. LOVE this! Interlocking cross quilts are my favorite, and your color scheme is GREAT! Well done!

  2. I love your "Plus" quilt, and these colours look fabulous together!

  3. Hi Catherine. Just found this quilt in a google search for "solids wonky cross quilt". Have to say that I LOVE it. Great choice of colours. Loving the pop of orange. Am itching to embark on my first solids quilt too - am definitely inspired by this. Great job! I'll be pinning it. :)

    1. Thanks Erin! Highly recommend making an all solids quilt, I'm keen to make another (I'll just add it to the queue of projects….)
