Patchwork of the Crosses

I have three quilts I'm working on at the moment ( taking up way too much room around the house ) and lots more I'd like to start of course...

My reproduction version of Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses is close to a finish. The top is done - and I have selected backing, binding and bought the wadding...

Here are some photos of the individual blocks:

This blogging is slow going for me at the moment (steep learning curve for the not-so-computer-savvy) so that is all for now. Back soon...

    1. Thanks Chris - you might notice a photo of the Mariner's Compass quilt in one of the photo collages in the last post ( from classes you gave in Berrima). I should have mentioned your name along with the others - sorry :(

  16. Beautiful POTC blocks, So excited to get started on POTC blocks of my own..., any suggestions about how to prepare and get started??

  17. Your work with POTC or Lucy Boston hexagons is wonderful. May I ask where you found the template for the elongated hexagons? I am looking everywhere for them, but have only found them on something called Inklingo of which I am unfamiliar.
