Lucy Boston Patchwork of The Crosses and the Easter Bunny!

 Two new blocks. One for a friend.......
(No, it ain't perfect, but I hope she won't mind)


One for me.......

I guess my sewing machine is probaly covered in a layer of dust by now. I am so glad to have hand stitching to do since things are so busy around the farm right now. But there is a long list of machine sewn quilts and projects waiting patiently too. I finished up that top block early this morning waiting on the Easter Bunny to get here. And look what he brought!



We were very happy to have this little guy arrive safely this morning! This is her first calf and what a sweetie! Now to think of a special name for him since he was born on such a special day! I hope yall are having a wondrous Easter Sunday!
  And, I would  love to give a very warm welcome to all of my newest friends and followers. Welcome to the farm ladies! I am so glad to have yall plowing along with us! Have a great day everyone!

  1. What lovely blocks! are you using the inklingo to cut them out for piecing? I have downloaded it but have yet to print anything out. Your adorable blocks just might push me over the edge this week. Hand work is so portable - a great thing to work on in little bits of time.

    1. Hi Deb,
      I am making these the traditional English Paper Piecing way. It is easier for me to fussy cut that way. These blocks are so fun! Please be sure and share photos when you get started with them! Thank you for stopping by.

  2. Great blocks! I grew up on a farm, my mom used to milk a brown swiss. How exciting to have a baby born today! I am sure you will come up with a special name.

  10. Are you buying fabrics or using stash for your POTC? Your work here and over at I Have Been Hexed and I Like It are inspiring me to start a POTC myself.

  17. Awww cutey calf!!
    Love the way you've used your fabrics here. I love the block design but don't care for the cross being so obvious, as if its a religious proclamation lol which of course it isn't but it just seems that way to myeyes!
    But cutting your pieces so cleverly disguises the cross so well and really I love that! Very, very clever fussy cutting!

  18. Nice blocks. The center of the yellow one is really pretty, and the blue one almost looks like a printed square! You matched that design up really well.

  19. Wow I LOVE that block! It reminds me of Jinny Beyer's Soft-Edge Piecing. I think you should name the calf Patches. He's in a patch of sunlight, and the quilt reference is kind of à propos... :-) Also, viewed your profile, and I love the mountain of north Georgia, been through them several times, want to get off the beaten track and SEE them one of these days.
