Patchwork of the Crosses - Lucy Boston blocks, and
I found a couple more blocks that I don't think I've shared before.
(I guess I've just been too excited about getting them stitched together to take the time to photograph and share!)
Both of the blocks I am sharing today I made with only one fabric each:
And, the fabrics from which they were cut:
|Divers 1863, Margo Krager - Newcastle Fabrics|
|Scarlet Evening, Judie Rothermel - Marcus Fabrics|
but you can see the coloration difference in the wooden floor from my camera adjusting for the color saturation.)
When I saw the beautiful Scarlet Evening fabric,
I fell in Lucy-love with it -
(that's a specific fabric love to use in a Lucy block :)...because I could just see all of those
stripes and swirls and leaves meeting up in a block!
BUT, (notice the BIG but) nothing -
and I mean N-o-t-h-i-n-g in this fabric
is lined up to fussy-cut or mirror!!SO... after MUCH finagling and a Swiss-cheese half yard of fabric,
I finally did get one block. It's not perfect, but passable.
More Lucy-love to come shortly -
I almost have another row completed!
Hope your weekend is wonderful
and happy stitching,
