good afternoon! i have several things to do today before i take off until Thursday. Then we are loading for the Fiber Fest in Bemidji on Friday. Still some crazy quilt block kits to fold and bag, a quilt to quilt, and hopefully kits for the Ring of Roses and Cottage Eggs…(along with a pattern for the Cottage Eggs).
Today, however, i’ve got some Lucy news. I ordered myself a bolt of the Bella Bleach PFD for the Summer Cottage Lucy blocks…it arrived yesterday and i set to work.
It was relaxing last night to baste and stitch the pretty white honeycombs and dusky pink squares. I HAD to stitch together 2 sashing pieces and a corner to get the look…and I love it! It looks even better than i had imagined it would.
In order to cut down on the starting and stopping i’m doing 6 honeycombs with 4 squares for the sashing and the cornerstone/cross will have 12 honeycombs around it.
i’m putting the blocks together starting with block 1 and working across.
***keep in mind that some of the Summer Cottage blocks are sold out…and some are down to just a few kits or just 1 kit –hello block 1–***
here is a link to the Summer Cottage blocks…Summer Cottage Blocks
If you are interested in using the bleach PFD and the dusky pink (bunny hill pink) to finish off your Lucy Boston POTC just let me know how much you need and we can get you set up with it.
now i’d better get quilting.
happy stitching–i’ll be back next Tuesday with a follow-up on my Lucy progress! –april
