Winding Ways and Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC)
What a wonderful way to relax and sew!
I enjoyed every stitch so much that I made 15 of these POTC blocks—using the Winding Ways book!
In my excitement, I took lots of photos and designed a special offer.
Special Offer on Winding Ways for POTC Quilters
The Winding Ways book—despite the name—is perfect for anyone making Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC). Monkey says you should scroll all the way down for an irresistible offer too!
It is easy to underestimate how much you will use this book if you think it is just for Winding Ways.
- How to fussy cut POTC hexagons
- How to determine fabric requirements
- How to hybrid piece, sewing sew some seams by hand and some seams by machine
This book is fabulous even if you don’t print on fabric with Inklingo because there are complete instructions for freezer paper templates too. (What was I thinking? Easy answer. I was thinking about enabling you to make your best quilts.)
Use traditional fussy cutting with two-part freezer paper templates as described for Winding Ways.
Do you have enough fabric? It is important!
I was able to determine that I could get all of the shapes I needed from one fat quarter of this fabric—which was good because that is all I had.
The printing goes fast, so you can have stacks of hexagons ready to sew on the go.
Always be sewing!
Sew some seams by machine to get a fast start , , ,
. . . and finish the top by hand. It only took a few evenings in front of the TV.
A hybrid has some seams by hand and some seams by machine for the best of both worlds as shown in this POTC video.

A Very Special Offer! A $20 BONUS for a Limited Time
Even experienced Inklingo quilters will learn something from the Six Simple Steps With Scraps PDF. I designed this PDF with input from Inklingo quilters, and some say it is even better than The Inklingo Handbook.
This offer is good until Saturday, September 16, 2023. Please don’t wait!
Let’s start September the right way—printing and sewing our best quilts.
