This is an English Paper Piecing (EPP) pattern that will make a finished quilt that measures 61in x 47in. The EPP segment is appliqued onto a square of fabric to make a complete block. There are 12 blocks in a quilt. This block is inspired by an orphaned quilt block unearthed at the Brimfield Antiques Show in Massachusetts. The beauty of this quilt pattern is the two negative spaces that result when the blocks are assembled - both inside each block and within the lattice work of the pieced blocks. The secondary Crosses for Quilting pattern that gets revealed once the blocks are pieced together lends itself to beautiful quilting work. English Paper Pieces not included.
