POTC - Lucy Boston

Maryam seems unable to help herself, and has made not only her second, but also her third and fourth POTC / Lucy Boston block.

She is planning on making a wall-hanging with these.

More POTC - Lucy Boston

Kathi is making Patchwork Of The Crosses blocks too. These blocks seems almost epidemic :-) Try clicking on some of the pictures to see a larger version of the same, and some of the delightful fussy-cutting that is going on in these blocks

LeMoyne Stars

Frummie is making LeMoyne stars, and has sent this picture of her doings the first week of the Inklingo Sampler.

POTC Interpretation

Charlsey has begun a new set of Patchwork of the Crosses blocks using directional prints. She writes: "Here is my interpretation of the first block in row one of Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses. Much to my surprise the very center has a tiny blue circle - unplanned. Also unplanned was the stripe around the block that give the block a square look."

Charlsey has also come up with a way to store the pieces for each block, ready to stitch. She writes: "My POTC is a portable hand piecing project. I put the pieces for each block in a Floss-A-Way baggy used for embroidery floss. There is a hole in the top corner of the baggy so I put them on a metal ring. This is a picture of 14 blocks prepped and ready to sew."

POTC coming together

I know we have lots of pictures of POTC / Lucy Boston blocks, but ... Inklingoists love that collection, and it is very exiting to see each block grow, and, once there are enough blocks, to put it all together.

Mary has reached the "put together" stage, and this is what her (smaller) version of the Lucy Boston quilt looks like ... so far.

Red Toile Quilt

Mary is busy these days. Here's her Red Toile quilt. She writes :

The Toile quilt used 1.5" HST in the pieced blocks which were 9". Then 2" HST in the first border.

The quilt is 54X70 or there about.
