First POTC block

Maryam made her very first Inklingo block.

She writes :
I just couldn't resist any longer and had to put together a POTC block of my very own !!! Actually, this is the first Inklingo thing I have stitched. Of course, as you all know who have done these blocks, it went smoothly and now I can't get it out of my head and looking forward to many more ! I did machine piece it all ... just to prove it can be done ... I enjoy a challenge ! lol
I am so excited!!! I can't wait to do more....but I have so many other projects I need to do. I will probably sneak some of these in when I can....can't help it.....it's so addictive!

Lucy Boston / POTC

Martha is (still) making small POTC blocks. She writes :

Can't see where I am headed yet but I sure am enjoying the journey.

And they look lovely.

Wendy made her own Chawton Cottage wall-hanging, using Tilde's pattern.

I have quilted little diamonds around the edge and into the border, and used little pink and taupe beads to 'button' the quilt.
I love it and it will hang in my bedroom.

Size approximately 19 x 22"

More Lucy Boston POTC (Patchwork Of The Crosses)

Charlsey has been making Patchwork of the Crosses blocks.

The blocks all look so different when you look at all the different ones being made right now. To see all the POTC posts, click here.

LeMoyne star quilt

Mary Anne made this pretty quilt using the free collection of 4.5" (finished) LeMoyne stars. She writes

Linda is a great friend and when she gave me the LeMoyne Star collection I was going to make a few to see if I could do it. I think she gave it to me as she figured if I could download it anyone could. (LOL) I was so pleased with myself that I actually did it all by myself. I was going to make a few, but it turned into a quilt for my Granddaughter.
It is 8 squares in both directions with 1/2 inch sashing between. 64 squares in all and I used cornerstones all from the fat quarters that I had used in the quilt. It is about 30 inches square, (my granddaughter has it and loves it so I can't say for sure). I didn't do anything very hard and it went together so easily. I love it.

Boxed Stars

Tilde made this top, using the 2.25" diamonds from Collection # 3.

She writes :
I adapted the pattern from Jinny Beyer's "Quiltmaking by Hand", and used a lot of different fabrics, most of them quite boring on their own.

I love the way this pattern plays with the stars and boxes, and how you can see very different patterns when you shift your focus slightly. (It might be more visible, if you click on the picture and get a closer look)

The finished size of the top is 96" square.

Lone Star top

Tilde made this Lone Star top using the 6" LeMoyne Star collection.

She writes :
I apologize for not posting a picture that is taken front up, but our house is old, and the rooms small. It is all machine pieced ! and it took 2 weeks, from the picking of fabrics to the finished top.

Size of star, from tip to tip, is 84".

Spring Star baby-quilt

Anneke made this cute baby-quilt.

She writes :
I used the free LeMoyne Star collection to make Judy Martin's Spring Star pattern. (Available on 'Judy Martin's Stars and Sets' cd by Electric Quilt.) If you make the block size 25.5" the Inklingo star pieces fit.
I pieced the star by hand and did the rest on the machine, andI foundation pieced the tulips (a first for me).
This experiment is my fourth finished top and will be my second finished quilt. Somehow my non-Inklingo projects did not get finished so far. I wonder why ;-)?
Finished size will be 33.5" by 59" or 85 by 150 cms.

Patchwork of the Crosses - Lucy Boston

Carole too is making Patchwork of the crosses blocks. It seems almost epidemic :-)

But quite understandable, when you see how good, and how very different, they all look (to see all POTC posts, click here)
