Yes! Another English Paper Piecing project! This is the year of the EPP!
It could be that the uncertainty that is COVID-19 has made me want to do more meditative work such as hand sewing. Or it could be that if I don’t have something handy while I watch TV I fall asleep so it’s almost a necessity to have a hand sewing project going.
Patchwork of the Crosses was designed by English novelist Lucy M. Boston.
Today I’m posting a tutorial on how to make the blocks. Next time I’ll post a tutorial on joining the blocks together.

What paper to use?
I print my EPP shapes on cardstock.
Recommended fabric collections
I made this project as Michael Miller’s Ambassador.
It turns out I love gingham, basics and directional prints in general and Michael Miller has a great range of those.
My book Turnabout Patchwork
“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
- Order Turnabout Patchwork on Amazon
- Order Turnabout Patchwork directly from Martingale (e-book only)
