I have also been seeing Crossroads blocks on other people's posts and wanted to give that block a try. I had plenty of teal and turquoise strips left from my star blocks last month to throw together these four Crossroads blocks. I found two helpful tutorials here and here. The blocks went together very quickly. My teal scraps were cut into 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangles, and the blocks will finish at 12". It is easy to make the blocks in other sizes too. I'm not sure I love the grey background with all the teal and turquoise fabrics, but it was a good starting point.

It's time for me to link up to Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday. There is an incredible variety of ideas and inspiration there to enjoy, which is the reason why Monday has become one of my favorite days of the week!
