This week marks the half way point in the Nordic Crossing Quilt Along. I am absolutely loving how this version has been coming together and can’t wait to see it finished. There also have been some really fun versions popping up on instagram and I get so excited seeing all the different color combinations, which of course makes me want to sew even more versions of the pattern.
