Charlsey has begun a new set of Patchwork of the Crosses blocks using directional prints. She writes: "Here is my interpretation of the first block in row one of Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses. Much to my surprise the very center has a tiny blue circle - unplanned. Also unplanned was the stripe around the block that give the block a square look."
Charlsey has also come up with a way to store the pieces for each block, ready to stitch. She writes: "My POTC is a portable hand piecing project. I put the pieces for each block in a Floss-A-Way baggy used for embroidery floss. There is a hole in the top corner of the baggy so I put them on a metal ring. This is a picture of 14 blocks prepped and ready to sew."
