More Lucy Boston blocks...

The Friday girls have been very busy again this week making more Lucy Boston blocks! The fabric combinations are all wonderful and the fussy cutting is amazing!

These blocks are very addictive - once you start you can't stop. Each fabric creates its own special design whether it is a stripe, a pattern or a flower.

This group are inspired by fabrics from mostly one range. Keep watching because this one will be very special when finished.

The Friday girls turned up again on Tuesday this week .... with a few new friends .... to work on the hand appliqué technique class with Julie Adamson.

This is what they all made in the day ..........  Just joking!!!! (This is Julie's stunning sample)

Now this is what they really did yesterday. A super practice piece covering straight appliqué, curved edges, reversed layers, leaves and small (tiny) circles. Lots of lessons learned and heaps of fun was had by all!

Summer school is almost over, just a few classes to go. Then its back to normal shop activities. 
Lets see what the class participants get up to next!


  1. Our weather is the opposite of yours. We have cold temperatures, lots of wind and snow....good stitching weather. Your Lucy Boston blocks are beautiful!

  2. Those blocks are quite stunning and I am looking forward to starting this quilt myself.
