Welcome to week 7 of the Nordic Crossing Quilt Along. This is the week that we get to start piecing rows and really see what the quilt is going to look like when it is finally all pieced together. This is probably my favorite weeks of the entire sew along.
Laying out all the colors of this vibrant scrappy version was so fun as I watched all the beautiful fabrics come together. The fabrics in this version of the quilt is by Sonata by Amy Sinibaldi combined with solids. The coordinating solids bundle is from Cottoneer Fabrics. After this week all we will need to do is sew all the rows together and you will have your gorgeous new quilt!

GRAB THE PATTERN

As I mentioned last week, I am making a scrappy version so all my center blocks will be different fabric prints and I love how they all look together.Thank you to our sponsors this week: Fantastic Long arm quilting services for one quilt from Handmade by Heather Alexander
