Who can stop at just one cross? They are highly addictive. See my previous tutorial for a quick way to make cross blocks. Once you have a few you can make this garland if quilts are a bit much still.
I used vintage fabrics and salvaged linens for mine.
Take the cross block and place it wrong side to wrong side with matching back fabric or fabric of your choice.
Stitch two straight lines down the squares and their backing.
Cut the blocks apart.
Use scalloped scissors or zigzag scissors for the edges.
Here is where we make the jam folks. start on one end leaving plenty of extra thread- 10 plus inches. Then keep stitching all the squares together- without cutting them apart- just keep stitching away, one right after the other.
So it looks like this.
Tada! Your little swiss flag garland.
