Kelli says: There are MANY triangles in the block…check, double check and triple check that all triangles are going the correct way. I did this and STILL flipped one of my strips the wrong way. Oh well….I’m leaving it, I decided it’s called Kentucky Crossroads for a REASON!

Jen says: Take the time to write your color locations on your foundations. Otherwise you will be second, third and fourth guessing yourself. This block is not difficult but rather extremely time consuming. You may want to consider using an Add-an-Eighth ruler for this block instead of the Add-a-Quarter ruler. Using the Green Add-an-Eighth ruler cut down tremendously on my bulk and make it easier to join my sections which stayed at ¼” seams. Take your time and this block will get done. I’ll admit, upon finishing my first response was not, WOW it looks great but rather to be thankful that I never had to make this block again in a 6” size!
