Take a journey when you combine the crossed canoes and crossroads quilt blocks together! This fun quilt will bring motion to any room.

It is created by teaming up the crossroads die with a few other fan-favorites. This quilt takes advantage of the negative space, but not your heart!

This project is the perfect size for a cozy baby quilt or to curl up with when it’s cool outside.
