Patchwork Of The Crosses - POTC's

Well - its been a few years since I got to this stage

All sewn by hand using Inklingo method by Linda Franz

You may even have seen the picture below a few years back

 Here then there were nearly 5 rows completed... I have now completed that row and have 
started on Row 6... I am actually beginning to get a bit confused..

I realised when I was completing Row 5 that I needed some more of the shape C in the POTC collection.  Well... thinking... how did I do that?


 So I found my collection... worked out which colour need printing... and how the printed worked :)
And ironed a sheet of my Freezer paper to my fabric..
(cut to a bit smaller than the size of the paper)
and it all worked beautifully.... fantastic.
I then cut the small pieces apart and have plenty now to complete the quilt - I hope!

 So.. now I am going to sew together  by hand - so very slowly-two rows separately and then sew those rows together.

This is my box of  my Inklingo previously printed and cut  pieces ready to sew to the already completed POTC blocks with the creme pieces
And ...
As I am again off to hospital tomorrow to get my pacemaker sorted... I hope to have these with me, in case I feel like doing some actual sewing...

I may be a while before I get back to my machine quilting... but I will hand sew as I feel up to it.

Happy sewing and quilting and hope to be here again soon.
