Colourful Crosspatch

1 Comment

Cathi made this colourful quilt top using the 1-inch 90-degree hexagon Patchwork of the Crosses Inklingo collection.

It was such fun making this top that I think I may have to make another. I would never have made this were it not for Inklingo as English paper piecing just isn’t for me. It is so quick and easy to stitch shapes like hexagons with a simple running stitch with the perfect Inklingo stitching lines – much quicker than basting and then whip stitching and no worries about my whip stitches showing. Fussy cutting/printing some of the shapes for the blocks added some interesting effects and was very easy to do. Having all the edge pieces needed to add the pieced border as in the original Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses really made this a joy to piece. I rarely ever follow a pattern or make an exact replica, but the Lucy Boston POTC is one that I couldn’t resist.
