Double Cross Quilt Block

You are here:

There are probably several ways to make the Double Cross Quilt Block, but perhaps the simplest method is to break it down into one simple unit: The Square-in-a-Square Quilt Block Unit.

If you divide the block in half vertically and horizontally you will see how the block can be constructed using four Square-in-a-square units.

If you look at a grouping of these you will see how the block gets its name.
