Thanks for the responses on the Caribbean Lucy Boston blocks!
It's so fun to choose colors and they are easy peasy to put together!
These blocks are also called Patchwork of the Crosses and Linda Franz has a great book and some helpful videos on her site.
I found out about Lucy Bostons or POTC blocks on Pinterest. Go figure. I was at a local quilt show last year and found a vendor selling the acrylic templates and paper patties and bought them. I'm not using a book, just sort of (as usual) muddling my way through.
You can hand piece (English Paper Piecing) these blocks using acrylic templates to cut your fabric
and paper ones for piecing.
I use an Elmer's Glue Craft stick.
Here is the finished block I had cut out last week.
EPP (English Paper Piecing) is very relaxing and can be done on the go, while waiting on kids during soccer practice, and being on the ready to help kids with schoolwork.
(which means I sit at the table while they work, because as soon as I walk away to sew, they need me right now! LOL)
Also on the table is the Bow Tie Value quilt.
I'm echo quilting the "circular" block. Plain white thread. Which I love! There's just something so clean and simple about it.
This morning I surprised my family with pumpkin chocolate-chip muffins for breakfast.
Stop by these linky parties for inspiration and something other than white (think I'm so tired of snow!) to look!
