A Thoroughly Modern Patchwork of the Crosses

Carol in Panama made this absolutely stunning version of Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses using the Inklingo 90-degree 1.5″ Hexagon collection.

She writes:

“I used the 1.5” 90-degree hexagon. The POTC was one of my favourite blocks to make. I would heartily recommend it to a first-time Inklingo user. It is very easy to sew and you can wow all your quilting friends with your perfectly matched inset seams! Not an easy task without     Inklingo.

I asked my long-arm quilter, Margaret Gunn, for whimsical – unexpected, not traditional quilting. Lucy Boston’s pattern is usually made in traditional fabrics. Since I am calling it ‘Thoroughly Modern Lucy’ I wanted modern quilting.”

These extra pictures give us a great look at some of the special effects Carol got with her fabrics as well as the quilting.

    • Thanks for the comment Tammy. I wonder how I stopped at only 25 blocks – I had such fun choosing the color combinations I could have gone on and on – I’ll probably make another one some day.
