In turn Deb was inspired by the book, Quilts from the Heart by Karin Renaud.
It was only after I made the block that I went back and found out that its name is Arkansas Crossing.
Deb made her blocks with 2 inch squares - I am making mine with 3 inch squares.
I decided to Google Arkansas Crossing and it is a traditional block.
I had to see the end product to get me going and even then I constructed it in a totally different way to what I would have if I had known about this traditional block called Arkansas Crossings also known as Arkansas Cross Roads.
Thanks, Deb, for sharing on your blog. I hope you have been an inspiration to others as well.
