Back in 2010 when I first started dabbling with patchwork, this was one of the first books I bought & was totally inspired by this lady's amazing patchworks all done by hand which is what started me with my love of English Paper Piecing (EPP)
I have read this book many times from cover to cover & had one day planned to make this iconic quilt of hers........ The Patchwork of the Crosses
Well that day has come & I've finally made a start.
For this quilt I've chosen to work mainly with Civil War reproduction fabrics from my stash although a few extra fat quarters may be acquired along the way, well we always need a bit more variety, don't we?
Here are the first few blocks:
These 2" squares below are great for using up small scraps & really fun to fussy cut. They form the centres of what I call the connecting blocks or even could be considered as cornerstones between the main blocks
Hmmmm..........I'm already seeing another quilt design forming using these fun squares, Watch this space!
