Hopefully everyone has had a wonderful winter vacation and spent the last 2 weeks catching up on your Lucy blocks…or maybe you kicked back and read a book, binged Longmire, or drank too much coffee (no such thing!)
***we had a nasty stomach bug sweep through our house New Year’s weekend…so we didn’t feel the best and unfortunately we can’t blame it on too much champagne. we are all on the mend now and are ready to get back in the swing of things…
so…on to 2018…
we hope you’ve been following along…if you are just popping in…this is week 29 of Lucy Tuesdays…
a little info…
Lucy Boston stitched the lovely Patchwork of the Crosses in the late 1950’s. She used lovely prints and did the most amazing fussy cutting to create her breathtaking blocks.
She used 2 different shapes…honeycomb and square.
I pieced a Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses a couple years ago though my original was made of Civil War fabrics…I fell for the POTC made from florals. (for the blog post featuring my Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses…Jane and Lucy)
so I decided to do another round of the Lucy potc blocks, but this time I would offer kits for the blocks.
Since each block can have between 1 and 4 different fabrics (depending upon fussy cutting) I thought it would be fun to see the various layouts…it’s amazing how different it looks when you move around colors.
The civil war Lucy block.
How about a trip to the summer cottage with Lucy?
Each kit will include:
fabric to make at least 1 block (the excess can be added to your lucy stash)
24–1 inch honeycomb papers
4–1 inch square papers (or multiples of 4 depending upon how many 4-patches are fussy cut from the fabrics
pattern card with color layout and cutting instructions
Kits will be $8.
we have added listing options to the website…you can add:
Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses book
1 inch Honeycomb and 1 inch Square templates (with 3/8 inch seam allowance)
it’s time to get stitching!
