Patchwork of the Crosses

in Inklingo, Lucy Boston--Patchwork of the Crosses, quilts

tn_FreeVintageImagesofChristmasClipArt16_jpgI am getting caught up on these blocks.  It will be time to make two more new blocks before you know it.

I ran out of the little aqua blocks last night so today I need to run some more through the printer – remember I am doing the Inklingo method for this quilt – printing the fabric out through the printer with the lines on it for easy hand piecing the seams are marked on to the fabric.  (you can machine piece if you want to – it doesn’t have to be hand pieced).

Almost 4 rows done – I might work on it more today after I get the aqua squares cut out.

With the last two blocks that I have done – I will have to look through my pieces of hexagons already cut out and decide what colors the last two blocks for this 5th row will be.   This will be 48 x 60 inches plus the border around the edges – I haven’t looked to see what that amounts to for the finished size.  I might do one more row so it is 5 rows by 5 rows – or 60 inch square plus border that would be a good size for a small quilt or a table topper.  I really don’t think I will continue it though for a large size.  I have plenty of queen size quilts and I would like to concentrate on finishing the big ones waiting in line.

It was so nice earlier today that I was back outside raking leaves.  I never did get the lawnmower going and Mike has been busy with other things so I just rake when I feel like it.  With the upcoming 3 nights to be in the 20’s I just might go ahead and take the two fern pot down from the porch and put them under the piles of leaves!  It might save them – who knows  I just don’t have room nor the light for them in the house.  I think I will bring the petunia pot in the house and put it on one of the wide windowsills in the living room where it will get some light.  Maybe it will survive – I’m not good with houseplants and tend to over water  Sad smile

Do you iron the fabric to freezer paper before sending it through the printer? I am very interested in learning more about this method.

The aqua was an excellent choice for setting the blocks. I would not have thought to use that colour, but it is perfect. Wonder what the border will be? Hope your ferns survive the Winter.

I just love love love that quilt. Love the colors you are using, and the pattern is in the lineup of my “hope to do someday” list.

Really coming along with this quilt! It’s looking wonderful!

Love how the aqua brings out all of the other colors. I think a table topper or small wall hanging would be great. Or just throw it over the back of the couch or a chair for a splash of color next spring.
