{crossroads quilt}

i am a fan of symmetry. and white sashing. and, of all pre-cuts i love layer cakes the most (aside from fat quarters...but sometimes they're just out of question, you know?).
so i was thrilled to learn, that the quilt which tacha (hanies) brought to our guild meeting was to be a free moda bakeshop tutorial!
in person it's even more gorgeous...
