Lucy Blue

When I was at Nundle last weekend, I picked up my latest Lucy Boston block from Shiralee Stitches.


As those of you whom follow my blog would know I have been slowly working away on this quilt for over 12 months. I have been happily just plodding along waiting for Sandy's blocks to arrive and making them up as they arrive. However a few weeks ago with a little prompting from Sandy and Chookyblue I got a little serious and decided I needed to choose my main background. I decided I wanted to be a little different and not go with the traditional cream background.

I discussed with Sandy the option of using a French General blue. Sandy very kindly sent me a picture of the blocks on the blue and I was smitten. . . . .



The latest block with the blue addition, I m pretty happy . . . .


So for several nights I glued and glued and glued. The majority of the elongated hexagons went into little bags ready for their trip to Europe, these are the rest of what I've prepared. Ready to join my already completed blocks.


My first completed ( well almost) block with my French General Le Marais fabric




The second block is well under way . . . I m thrilled with my French Blue fabric and am looking forward to seeing my "Lucy Blue" quilt evolve. Although I think it will be many months before she is all together. I am definitely enjoying the Lucy journey.  I have recently created three of my own blocks which you will hopefully see during my Posts from Europe.

Only 6 days to go

The blue is a great choice. Like cream it goes with anything, but is a nice change. Good to have some sewing prepared for your trip, but I think you will be too busy having a wonderful time!

The blue does look great. EPP is so portable - a great option for traveling.
Have a fabulous time.
