Here are my four blocks for August:
Lucy Boston - Patchwork of the Crosses - August blocks
I think I mentioned before that I wasn't finding fabric (for connecting squares) that I LOVED that went well with all the patterns and colors in the blocks for this quilt...
Part of the problem was that I had wanted to get quite a few of blocks done before I started connecting them as I wanted to be able to spread out the blocks to balance the blocks/colors across the quilt.
I finally chose my fabric to make the connecting squares,so now I can start making a quilt from all these blocks!
It's a light blue/slate gray/linen-looking fabric.
I had hoped to find something that was a little more patterned, but after laying blocks all over many bolts of fabric at the LQS, I went with the fabric that was my first choice. Isn't that how it usually is?
Choose a few bolts of fabric and put them on the cutting table, choose some more bolts and add to the stack on the cutting table, ask opinions, then go with your first instinct? :)
Is it just me and my
or do you do this also?
And, finally, I'm kind of proud of myself -
I'm still up to date on
my goal of
one block a week
on this, my Lucy project for this year!
That's 35 blocks so far!!!
What are you stitching on this week?
