Good Tuesday Morning! I hope that everyone had a wonderful, long holiday weekend. We were able to get 35 bales of hay cut, teddered, raked and rolled! Since we are short on pasture this year, we will feed hay for most of the summer! So every roll that we can bale is a bonus!
I also wanted to share my latest Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses blocks.
Yall I just love making these blocks so much.I think I have 3 different styles of quilts in the works with these.
And I keep learning so much with each block. The center on this block just makes me grin every time I look at it. I tell ya, that Lucy Boston was a genius! Each block is made with 24- 1" honeycombs and English Paper Pieced. They are then surrounded with 24 background honeycombs and joined to the next block with 1" squares! What is amazing to me is that this shape has been around for YEARS and YEARS! It is the original Church Windows shape! Lucy Bostons manner of fussy cutting was amazing.And the order in which she assembled the block gives it a whole new look. I so wish I could have learned from her. But in a way, I guess I am, retrospectively! Kits to make both of these blocks are listed in my Etsy shop Featherweight Quilt Company! I love how each block is so different.
We are carrying cattle to the Cattle Auction, so I have a block cut and ready to sew together! I cannot wait to share it with you. I think it will really be a challenge, but worth it!
I also wanted to share my Memorial Day Stitchery with yall! I just love some good ole Red, White and Blue!
Now, I want to say Welcome to all my new friends and followers. If you get a moment, drop by and tell them hello. Some are really new to blogging and sewing and could use the encouragement! They sure do encourage and inspire me!
Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope yall have a great day! If you get to huntin for me, I'll be the one singing "Now Get Along Little Dogies"!
Now, get along....
