Whew! Day 4 of "5 Days x 5 Giveaways = 25 Chances to Win!"

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Winners will be announced tomorrow Tuesday February 25,2014!
Good Luck Everyone!

Yeehaw Yall! I don't know about yall but yesterday had me Daydreaming about Spring. And Chocolate. And flowers. And sunshine. And bumblebees. And piles and piles of fabric! And living in a Sewing Machine Castle!

I mean, who wouldn't want to live here.  I wonder if the door opens when you turn the Hand Crank?    Anyway, I hope yall are enjoying my Blog Anniversary week as much as I am! We've had some gorgeous thread offered to us by Aurifil, a sweet FQ bundle of Mirabelle from The Fat Quarter Shop and a bright and bee-utiful bundle of Daydreams from The Intrepid Thread. And yall have done a wonderful job of letting them know how much we appreciate their support!
 So today we are going to switch things up a little bit. I wanted to share something I started learning this past year. English Paper Piecing.
Happy Go Lucky Hexies.

 Yall we were spending so much time in the hay fields this past summer, that I wanted to carry something with me to work on. Too hot to knit or crochet. And since I was already a member of the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap I started taking hexagon papers and fabric with me to the hay fields.
I made Gingham Hexies,


I made Crane Hexies,

I had them flying in Circles and V formations

I finally got these characters landed on a quilt ...
Tsuru!
I haven't got this one quilted yet. I want to learn Shashiko and hopefully quilt at least part of it using Shashiko.

Then I went back to my Happy Go Lucky Hexies
and landed them on a quilt for my niece,
Machine Quilted, here's the back...

So when I got tired of monkeying around with hexagons;

I found a gorgeous quilt called "Patchwork of the Crosses" made by Lucy Boston during the post war era probaly around the 1950's ;
I was very intrigued and started searching around the internet to find out more information. And wowzers yall, the blocks quilters are making today are just phenomenal! I am just beginning to learn fussy cutting. Check out these blocks on my Pinterest! I'll wait here. Ok.  Now, you see why I say I am just learning to fussy cut. These blocks are made using 1"honeycombs for the blocks and 1" squares for the sashings.I order all my papers from PaperPieces.com As a matter of fact, they sponsored my Bee group with a discount !
Here was my first attempt:
And the back.  
Well I was hooked. I just had to learn more about this Lucy character and her Patchwork of the Crosses. So I contacted Diana Boston, daughter-in-law of Lucy, and ordered Diana's Book The Patchworks of Lucy Boston . Oh my, yall, that was it. Hook, line and sinker. So I started an "I Love Lucy International Bee" on Flickr . These ladies are so much fun. And they are making beautiful POTC quilts. Some are using bright and modern fabrics. You can see all the blocks we've made so far on Flickr.
Well beside making blocks for my Bee mates, I have been working on TWO POTC Quilts myself.
In the first quilt I am using American Banner Rose Fabrics.

(ignore the cherry background fabric :) )
I only have 6 blocks made so far. I am going to try to make the complete quilt using only American Banner Rose Fabrics.
"Lucy visits America"! 
 I haven't decided on the sashings and the actual Crosses between the blocks yet. What do you suggest? I thought about all red stars for the sashing and then scrappy in the middle of the crosses? (Look at the picture of Lucy's quilt) And I don't know if I like the block that has the green honeycombs in it. ABR does not have green. Not sure where I got that. Since this line is out of print, I may be working myself into a corner trying to stick with all the same fabric line :O
So, for my month as Queen in the I Love Lucy International Bee I have decided to go with "floral Shabby Chic" scrappy look. Here is my first block:
The fabrics are actually showing up dark in the picture.  I have this same print of the garland roses in pink and blue. So I am going to just do a very shabby, scrappy quilt. My month to be Queen hasn't rolled around yet in the Bee but one of  my Bee mates has already sent me a block. I LOVE it!

Ana Maria of anamarpatch made this BEE-UTIFUL block. I just love the soft colors and the fussy cut flowers.  I can't wait to see what my other Bee mates come up with.
So I guess you can see where all this headed. Toward our sponsor for today!
Yay! Paper Pieces.com has done it again and come through for me. Yall, these ladies at Paper Pieces are so sweet and patient. The first time I called I had no idea what to ask for or what I needed. They explained everything to me so patiently and made sure I was getting what I needed. 
Here is what they are offering for one lucky reader!
A 100 pc pack of the 1" Honeycombs, a 150 piece pack of the 1" squares and the Honeycomb acrylic template! I LOVE their templates. It has a 3/8" seam allowance so when you cut your fabric you are ready to sew. It is great for fussy cutting! 
So , everything you need to get you started on your own Lucy journey! 
If you have ever wanted to try English Paper Piecing then here is your chance. 
Paper Pieces.com not only has everything you need for Lucy Boston Blocks but they have Apple Cores,Chrysanthemums and Dresdens,Clamshells and Diamonds and hexagons and Octogons and Pentagons and Squares and Triangles and Tumblers and Windmills! Plus books and templates and patterns!
Whew! Plus they have instruction aide if you need it. And a Special each week! I love ordering from them.
Usually Jess answers the phone if you call them or you can order online. (Tell Jess I said hello)
I just wish I had more time in a day for sewing. Every time I visit their website, I find something else I want to make!

  8. Wow!! I love your Lucy Visits America quilt....gorgeous!! No help with sashing though...lol. I don't make decisions well myself!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I kind of like the way it looks on your design wall with the white showing... perhaps that's your sashing answer. I'd be nervous about scrappy sashing for fear of losing some of the impact of those amazing blocks.

  15. You've done a beautiful job with the paper piecing. I love how different the blocks look with the placement and the fussy cutting. I wish I could help with your sashing choices but, I'm horrible picking colors. I usually ask the ladies at my LQS or a friend. Good luck.

  20. Love your POTC. Now I'm going to want to make one and I've never even tried paper piecing. I would use a light cream on cream print for the sashing as I think it would allow the blocks to stand on their own.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks to Paper Pieces.com for sponsoring todays giveaway.
    Your blocks are so pretty, Jan. I would go with a soft cream in the centers for the squares and use a red for the outside borders.

  40. Unless you need extra length, I think no border or a small one that matches the binding. The blocks are already gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I sent a mssg to Chantal (one of your GFC followers). I'm hoping that someone will send me a message too...that would be a thrill!!

  47. I would pout a simple, light coloured wide border on the LB quilt. It would be a great way to showcase the quilting, maybe some lovely swirling and curling feathers!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love this pattern. Maybe someday I will be brave enough to try it!!!. I would choose a navy blue for the sashing. Or even bolder, red. Oh, and I signed up for the paperpieces email newsletters.

  49. I am your follower and I follow the Lucy Boston Pinterest Board. I am pinning some to my board Avery Claire. I think you should use something that matches the lighter fabric in your lucy boston squares for the sashing. It's going to be lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  50. So nice to find your blog and all of your projects, hadn't thought of taking hexies to the field, we farm also, but they follow otherwise. I like the strong colors in Lucys's saching crosses, don't let hem hide, Keep up the good work, Kathy at repzjr at plains dot net

    ReplyDelete
  51. I found paper pieces and their newsletter a while back, but I need some more supplies, ready for the drawing. What do you think of then moving to Padukah? kathy repzjr at plains dot net

    ReplyDelete
  52. I am following your blog, I am subscribed to Paper Pieces e-newsletter and liked their FaceBook page. In fact, I think I am quite addicted, and the only thing stopping me selecting fabric for a POTC is the amount of other hand-pieced quilts waiting already!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I follow your fabulous blog through bloglovin' :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. A lovely almond cream colour for the sashing perhaps?! :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. It may sound boring, but I think white would really pop those blocks! I, too, love to take paper piecing with me when I travel. I have been drooling over Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses since I first saw it on Inklingo. I do prefer the handwork so still waiting. Thanks so much for this giveaway! I just signed up to follow you on Bloglovin!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love the shabby blocks with the rose pink and coral. I think a cream ivory slashing would be delicate and beautiful. Is there a pattern for this block somewhere or does it come with the paper pieces?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Jan - you are so very talented -- I think you should stick with a plain/kona white sashing -- the white looks nice through the gaps in your blocks now. What do you think ?

  66. I took a good look at the photo of "Patchwork of the Crosses" made by Lucy Boston and I like how she did her boarders...I would try to copy that. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

    ReplyDelete
  67. Your bee got me familiar with Lucy! If you could find a fabric in the right shade them something with ocean liner type boats would be good for the sashing.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I kind of like the red stripe for sashing.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Wouldn't you know I ordered the honeycomb template yesterday. They emailed me back with a question on my order because I also ordered a 1" template and some 3/4" paper pieces. They wanted to make sure I hit the correct box. I had plenty of 1" papers because I got my Accuquilt die and I only needed the template plus some 3/4" hexes for another project. That was so nice of them.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I signed up for their newsletter

  84. I am a huge Paper Pieces fan! They have the greatest customer service! I follow them on Facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Wow is all I can say about this post. This is all so crazy cool. I am not sure I want to do more than dabble in the little bit of hexis I have tried but you make it look so easy.
    I think your America quilt is going to rock. I can see it all put together with white to make the blocks pop but I also know that putting a dark between or around the edge will pop too and that red strip that is in that middle block needs to come back as the binding or something on the outer area cuz that is so striking. Good luck and I just don't know how you do it all. So great.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Your honey combs are just perfect ! Such neat work

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love Paper Pieces.com.When I saw your Lucy block I ordered some honeycombs and gave it a try. WHAT FUN...!! I get their emails an liked them on facebook. I enjoy your blog very much too! Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hi Jan. I think I would go with a neutral, possibly even bright white, for the sashing so that the blocks really pop but the secondary pattern also pops. It's hard to say for sure though without seeing it. You will figure out what's best.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I liked Paper Pices on Facebook. I haven't tried paper piecing yet but that would be a good think to do while watching my son's hockey games. :)

  101. Gorgeous blocks. I'm a big fan of PaperPieces, but haven't tried the honeycomb yet. You've definitely inspired me. Love what you are creating.

    The setting for the blocks in the antique is actually quite beautiful and would be fun to replicate. But I think I'd probably pick up some Bella Bella solids in a soft share, possibly a light tan and use the neutral for a background fabric to allow those blocks to stand out.

  141. I'm also thinking cream. It would allow the other fabrics to shine.

  143. Oh Jan! Those Lucy Boston blocks are awesome. My daughter gave me the pattern book a couple of years ago, and I have been itching to start it, but I had two hand pieced quilts in progress, and I have been making myself finish them first. Now one is done and the second almost done, so I am nearly there! It would be awesome to win this pack to get me going.

  145. I have no suggestions onthe sashings. I do love those crosses. Some of the centers remind me of ladies old-fashioned hankies.
