Patchwork of the Crosses Progess

This week I have been working on getting some more of the cream fabric honeycombs
around some of my blocks. I suddenly had that thought that it was going to get very
boring  if I left that step until the end!!!!

I also chose by fabric for the little squares that join the blocks together and frame 
the fussy cut corner units.

So this is the first two blocks joined together. I decided that I could start putting my 
quilt together as I could choose fabrics for future blocks based on what was needed
in the overall layout.

The corner units are fun to make too as they are four fussy cut squares.


Then Shirley gave me this block. She decided to join in us in the POTC projects
but also decided that the 1800s fabrics were not really her favourite thing.
So she is off into the Japanese Taupe Corner choosing fabrics that might work.
It will be exciting to see what she comes up with.

Our Patchwork of the Crosses Group was advertised on this week's email. 
You can see details on the News page of the shop website

If you are not able to come you can opt into an email membership. 
This will get you photos of  the blocks shared each month at the Group.
But you will need to send us photos of your blocks so group members can enjoy
them at meetings. Email the shop to join this group -

Back soon, Robyn


  1. Your blocks look great joined together Robyn. I enjoyed catching up with you on Friday and meeting fellow 'fussy cutters'. I can't wait to get back home to make a start on my blocks.

  2. Looking forward to joining this group Robyn. I like your POTCs which have very subtle "crosses". And I agree more fun can be had with the corner units. Not sure where I will be going with these or what fabric range to choose from. Maybe modern, maybe French General or maybe 1930's. Mmmmm. Choices choices !
