Lucy Boston - connecting more blocks, May 2014

May has slipped away, I know...
Probably, like you, the month was packed with
all the day to day stuff,
AND a whole lot of extra activities, too.
Fun and exciting extra things, like:
graduations and parties,
showers of not just the rainy kind,
but baby and wedding showers, too.

After all of those activities were checked off the calendar pages,
I did fit in some stitching time on my ongoing Lucy Boston quilt!
So, for May, 
I sewed together a row of 7! more Patchwork of the Crosses blocks
and stitched them to the top of the growing quilt-top:

 My Lucy quilt top to date:  end of May, 2014
 (Working on my goal to stitch together all the blocks 
that I English Paper-Pieced in 2013).
I still need to add quite a few of the little fussy-cut 4-squares
but I'm waiting to place colors before I stitch them in.
Here are the close-up pics of that top row - left to right:

This left block pictured has 3 of the 4 blue-striped corner pieces
that I've added incorrectly...
See the top left?  Only that corner piece is correct! 
as I wanted the stripes to form an outer corner.
Now I'm trying to decide if I should do some unstitching or leave it.

Here's last month's picture, to show the change in one month:

Lots of fun in the Month of May!!

Now on to June fun...more stitching time, hopefully,
and like May, MORE fun and exciting extra things, like:

graduations and parties,
showers of not just the rainy kind,
but baby and wedding showers, too. :)

Thanks for stopping by,
and Happy Stitching!

  2. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing. I love those blocks! I'm still deciding whether or not I'm going to start this LB obsession. Everyone I see says that it's addictive :) Kay
