The last of the winter Lucy Boston Blocks, and it shouts, “Hello Spring!”  Next week, I start on the Lucy Boston Butterfly Garden quilt…but for now, I am enjoying this wrap up to a VERY colorful winter series.  Thought you might enjoy some photos of the process we go through deciding color and placement before we do the final stitching!  I use ALL my papers, and create the framework for the blocks by fussy cutting colors and designs from each fat quarter: then, it’s puzzle time!  We spent an hour or so, ‘stealing’ from each other’s blocks and laying out designs – I still have quite a few honeycombs to stitch before I’m ready to lay them all out and make my final decisions.  For now, I hope you enjoy this sneak peek at block 14!

As I add stitched and lined honeycombs to the pile, matching and creating the blocks is irresistible!

 

Try creating a Lucy Boston block, I think  you’ll love it!  Use the link on each photo and visit the shop for papers and templates: all you need to begin your Lucy Boston adventure.  Of course, we’d love it if you purchased our kits, but you can get started on your own if you like with the fabrics you already have…and what a way to use up scraps in your stash.  :)   I’m adding some patterns for household things we use every day: potholders, tea cosys, pillow covers and more.  Stay tuned for creative ideas to use up your Lucy Boston creations!  (or you could make a fabulous, scrappy quilt – that’s where the bulk of my blocks are going).
