Pattern Details

I've always loved the X-Plus quilt block, and thought that the shapes utilized would lend themselves well to English Paper Piecing. So I did what any self-respecting quilter would do - I drafted my own templates! Please note that this download is only for the templates - there are no instructions included, so you do need to know the basics of EPP. The blocks finish at 10" square (which is another modification I made to the original X-Plus pattern) meaning that if you want to make a 40" square baby quilt, you need to make 16 blocks. You can read a bit more on my website: http://www.kayeprince.com/2017/03/new-x-plus-english-paper-piecing.html

I have always been a crafty person. I can remember my grandmother teaching me to use her sewing machine when I was five years old so that we could make clothes for my dolls. I love most handcrafts and can usually be found quilting, sewing, knitting, or cross stitching. I found my design mojo a few years ago when a friend was getting married; something popped into my head telling me that I needed to make her a quilt and I was off! I didn't realize that there was such a thing as a quilt pattern, so I just made it up as I went along. I have been designing my own patterns ever since. I now design for books, magazines, sewing websites/blogs, my personal line of patterns, and I often offer up free patterns and tutorials through my website (kayeprince.com). I also teach classes now, mainly for English Paper Piecing, and I enjoy it so much. I never thought that I would make a good teacher, but it seems that when it comes to sewing, my love of the craft just spills over and I forget all of my nervousness and anxiety.
