Shirley has made this fabulous miniature Patchwork of the Crosses. She could have used the Inklingo .75″ 90-degree hexagon collection. Why could have? Read on to find out!

“Well, first and foremost, I must thank Linda for the mini POTCs!!! These guys are so much fun!!

I did my latest POTC quilt (.75″ size hexagons) before the newest .75″ and .50” size collections came out. How? By printing out the Inklingo 1″ 90-degree hexagons without seam allowances and marking the .25″ seam allowance by hand to the inside of the fabric cut shape. It wasn’t harder, just took a little longer.

The 48-piece blocks finish at 6″ and the finished quilt size is 38″ x 38″.

Another thank you for the bonus shapes and options that come with the Inklingo downloads offered in the collections.

So ladies, try it, you’ll like it!! You will so enjoy the Inklingo process/technique and the new size options and the time it saves. Miniatures are so fun!”

  1. That’s it, I’m starting now. I’ve been cutting pieces so that I have a choice for each block, now I really must start to sew. I’m making .5″ pieces

    • Hi Judith! You gonna love it. You will be surprised how fast it goes and how addicting this block is. After one gets the hang of fabric selection and/or fussy cutting, it was like the old Lay’s potato chip commercial.. Betcha can’t eat (do) just ONE !

  2. Your quilt is beautiful. 🙂

  3. Thank you Jeanette , I had so much fun making this. It’s so fascinating to see how this one block can look so different just by which position/colors you put where … Never boring !
