Lucy Love.........

I am so behind with this post..............but it has been great to see some of the girls Lucy Boston quilts in progress........we often contact each other to see what we are up to or what do you think of this block.........
This is Sandy's.............She runs it as a BOM thru her shop online shop Shiralee Stitches........Sandy has also fussy cut the cross point blocks that make the 2in square (inside the grey) and they look great.........
the rest of us have done lots of her blocks but also made some of our own.........
It was great to see them together..........amazing the difference in the colour choices.................
Googy Girl is using blue.........looks so different........its the lovely french general blue..........
still amazes me how each block shows a different pattern........be it x or + some even the whole square........just by placement of fabric............
oh I love fussy cutting in Lucy.......
Here is an update on mine............6x2 so far.............we actually had mine and Sandy's on the bed together at GDITC and can you believe none of us took a pic............I was sure one of us had taken one........mine looked softer but in Sandy's the blocks popped out and showed off more............
Sonia didn't get to GDITC this year but I've caught up with her a few times since then and we had some great Lucy time.............we put these on the design board to see what they were going to look like............really liking the red too..........
Here is the stitching in the car on the Syd trip.............this one needed the extras around the edge but it is now sewn into the quilt............
I can't tell you how exciting it is now to have this coming together..............it sure is exciting to see those minutes, hours, days, weeks and months of stitching coming together...............oh I still have a long way to go but I can now see that this will come together and get finished............not tomorrow but it will happen...........
Hope you find some stitching time this easter weekend............
Catch you later...........

  3. Happy Easter Chooky! I have seen a few of these Lucy Bostons coming together on Instagram. They really are lovely no matter what colour fabrics they have been made in. So nice that you have friends all making the same quilt.

  11. I always look forward to your updates on your LB quilt progress. Your blocks are so lovely and have a softness about them. Seeing yours inspires me to continue on with mine. I put it aside for the move last summer and am working on the new studio and have yet to pull it back out. But I do have plans to work on it soon, just making room in the living area to be able to work on it. Those blue ones are gorgeous as well. I really love seeing different styles of these blocks.
