Patchwork of the Crosses

20140307 Patchwork of the Cross

Tammy in Virginia has started making Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses blocks using the 1.5″ 90-degree Inklingo collection.

She writes:

“I finally purchased the Inklingo 90-degree 1.5” hexagon collection as I couldn’t wait any longer. This is my first block of POTC. This block has so many possibilities. I worked on it while spending half a day at the doctor’s office and several ladies said they never could do that. I said, ‘Oh, yes, you can. It is simpler than you think.’ I showed them the printing on the back of the block for the cutting and stitching lines and they were impressed. I gave them a brief description of the technique and told them to go to”



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.

Patchwork of the Crosses

Carol has made another fabulously colourful quilt, this time with the 1.5″ 90-degree Inklingo hexagon collection.

She writes:

“The 25 blocks are hand pieced.  It has a 6” plain white border that was not attached when I took this picture.  It has not been quilted yet.

The pattern is an adaptation of Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses.  The title is ‘Thoroughly Modern Lucy.'”
