Lucy Boston blocks

I was going to do this post yesterday, then I looked at the calender and realised that it was April Fools day - and knowing my luck with computers, thought that I would wait another day!  AND  I must say that I loved having that extra hour yesterday morning in bed, we are finally back to normal time.

A little while ago, I purchased the Lucy Boston quilt book, and being a mad paper piecer, this was another project to start with reproduction fabrics, I was also intrigued by the way you could arrange them to create so many different effects with all sorts of colours and prints.  Just gets you so hooked playing with fabric, quite abit of time can be spent playing around with them!!! 

The stripes of these fabrics are perfect for fussy cutting, and make for a fantastic effect (and good to use up some of those odd ones you don't know what to do with)

And finally a blue one,

Hope you have enjoyed the pics,

Till next time,



  1. Your fussy-cutting is amazing! I guess the fabric choice helps a lot doesn't it. Can't wait to see the whole quilt.

  2. Beautiful Lucy Boston blocks!!! Awesome fussy cutting!!

  3. I've never seen blocks like these before and they are stunning - will have to keep an eye out for that book!

  4. I've never heard of Lucy Boston, I need to look that up. I enjoy paper piecing as well and this pattern looks just amazing.
