......and then there were six

Hello Everyone,
Just a quick post before I head off to Sew'n Wild Oaks class this morning at In Between Stitches.  Here is a picture of my night job.....Lucy Boston blocks.  This block is made with only three different fabrics. Historical Stripes by Paula Barnes for Marcus Fabrics, and Paula's Border Companions also from Marcus.

This one is a combination of several different lines.  Individually, I'm not crazy about this block.  Having said that, I think it looks wonderful when combined with the rest of them.  It brings something new to the table.

Slowly but surely, my grouping is coming together.  I could work on these blocks all day, every day and never tire of them.  They are just SO addictive.

I get to spend the day with "my girls" at the shop. I look forward to seeing them every month.  Be creative today. Dig out an old UFO and realize why you fell in love with it and started it in the first place.  Completion gives you a wonderful sense of satisfaction.  Be satisfied, be happy, and just be YOU!



  1. Beautiful blocks, Lynn! Those Marcus Fabric lines are just made for the Lucy Boston blocks! I'll miss the girls today!

  2. WOW!!! I really love all of these blocks !! GORGEOUS !!
    I really love the black & red one... you know me and red ;-)

  3. I really like the one you're not so crazy about and way the center is offset and swirls and the pops of blue! If it becomes an orphan, I'll adopt it!
    Love your parting inspiration. I was feeling really tired of the butterfly blocks on my design wall recently & really had to force myself to work on it. Something happened when I saw all the rows sewn together though, & I fell in love with her choice of bright happy colors all over again!

  4. Oh....I might need a new night job soon! I really love that second block - it has a personality all it's own and I'm sure it will play well with the others! Have fun today!

  5. Beautiful blocks! Finishing a project feels wonderful.
