Lucy Boston made her own templates for Patchwork of the Crosses. You can make yours with freezer paper and have even more advantages!
Templates for Patchwork of the Crosses
Happy New Year!
We’re celebrating more than 10 years of Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses with a new Facebook group and a new video!
Please join us in the new group.
As it shows in the video, when I cannot print on fabric with Inklingo . . .
. . . I use freezzer paper templates.
The tools are simple, so you probably already have everything you need.
If you feel like shopping, buy fabric instead . .
. . . and always use templates in the finished size!
I started teaching hand piecing with freezer paper templates over twenty years ago but my Quilted Diamonds books have given the impression that freezer paper templates are only for hand piecing. It is important to remember that they are just as good for machine piecing.
There is much more in the video.
