When my niece Ellie announced her upcoming wedding, I knew I wanted to make Ellie and her beloved a quilt. My daughter Meg and I settled on a pattern from the book, Modern One-Block Quilts, by Natalia Bonner and Kathleen Whiting.
The pattern we chose is “Criss-Cross”. This pattern was sure to please Ellie’s interior decorating style of simple whites. We loved the two lines crossing, symbolic of two lives joining in marriage. However, the pattern was a more complicated than I thought it would be, but thankfully, I had some expert help on cutting out the pattern pieces.
