Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses full project video tutorial

Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the crosses full video tutorial

Today’s tutorial is for the 3 parts to a Lucy Boston Patchwork of the crosses quilt.

The quilt uses just 2 different EPP shapes, a honeycomb hexagon and a square. Just follow the video for how many shapes you need for each piece and how to assemble them together.

This quilt takes time to complete and I’m still assembling my blocks. I’ll post the final quilt when I finish it which may take a while.

I’m making my quilt with plain fabrics and gingham mostly (see fabric details below) but the quilter is beautiful when with fussy cutting. 

A quick Google search will display lots of beautiful blocks to inspire you.

What paper to use?

I print my EPP shapes on cardstock.

Recommended fabric collections

I made this project as Michael Miller’s Ambassador for 2020.

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.
