 Yall thank you so much for participating in my Summer giveaway! I hope that you had the opportunity to meet some new people and gain some inspiration. Thank you to Aurifil and Fat Quarter Shop for their generosity! This has been so fun!

Now, those of you that know me know that I hafta show yall my latest Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses blocks! Both of which can be found in my shop, Featherweight Quilt Company.

I can't decide which layout I like best! Do you like Option 1?

Or option 2?

And here is the second block with different layout options.

Option 1?

I am so hooked on making these. They are super easy and considered a beginner block! 
Let me know which option you like best. And if you get a chance, drop by facebook and see me here! 
And because I can't leave without showing a couple of farm pictures, I'd like for you to meet "Libby",

She is in the "Big Girl" pasture now. No more hugs for me :(

And I tried to take a selfie with Daniel
But he almost ate the camera!

have fun yall! Thank you for playing along in my giveaway! A GREAT BIG HUGE WELCOME TO MY NEW FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS! 
Yeehaw yall!
Now get excited and make something!

  1. Congratulations to all the winners!
    On the options I would say , number 1 option 2 and number 2 option 1! :-)
    So fun to look at all of the possibilities! Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. What a lucky bunch of winners :)

    I also would say Option 2 for the first set of blocks and Option 1 for the second set of blocks. I love it when you share your blocks. They are all amazing to me!

  3. Congrats to the winners! Jan, opt 2 for the 1st block, opt 1 for the 2nd block. But they all wonderful!

  4. OMG... this is the first time I've ever won anything on a blog giveaway! I'm so excited! Thank you!!

    1. Oh - and I think I like option 2 for both blocks, just so you know.

  5. Cool beans! I am so excited to be a winner...Thank you so so much! Yippee!!!
    The Lucy Boston blocks are to die for. I love that fussy placement.

  6. Congratulations to all the very lucky winners.
    I like option #1 on both blocks.(It was actually hard to choose on the first block because both of them are sooo pretty.

  7. Congratulations everyone ! What a fantastic giveaway -- thanks Jan, Aurifil and Fat Quarter Shop. Jan your blocks are as beautiful as ever -- on both blocks I love Option1 the best -- but both options are stunning. Hugs... Karen

  8. I like all the options, but I would probably pick option 1 on both of them.

  9. I like option 2 fir the blue and option 1 on the red! So pretty!

  10. That was a really incredible giveaway, Jan!! I could not live without my Aurifil!! I accidentally purchased some cream-colored 12 wt and was not sure if I was going to be able to get it in my machine but your wonderful ideas tempted me and I am going to give it a try!! On your Lucy Boston blocks, I think you need to make one of each on the first one block and and I love option #1 on the second block!! Libby is gorgeous - sorry about no more hugs!! And that Daniel is a love!! Congratulations to all of the the lucky winners!! :-))

  11. Congrats winners!
    Have to say I prefer design layouts that dont feature the 'cross' so much but thats just because I tend to read 'religeon' into the crosses of the blocks lol
    But I really like those first 2 blocks layout above. The blues look 3D, it just proves how fabric choices, then fussy cutting and laying out in different designs, alters a block so very much!
    Of the reds, block 1 is just so pretty ( despite the obvious cross lol) and to me, the reds overwhelm the design in block 2 a bit too much.
    But you do such wonderful things with these blocks, they are a joy to see!

  12. I am a new follower - I love the No Ga mountains - we used to vacation in that area every year just for the peace and quiet. I found your blog when I was looking for info on the Lucy Boston quilt. You have a very nice tutorial on your blog. I have linked you on my blog so I hope to keep up with what you are doing. Love your little calf - so cute ! Melody

  13. Gosh durn it! I missed it! Blessings, Jan

  14. I like option two better for the dark block and option 1 for the red block. These are always so fun and pretty to make, aren't they? :)

  15. I am absolutely drooling over here looking at your blocks. I want to come play at your house, I can EPP but stick to Hexi's. And had a good time watching things going on on the farm. Thanks for sharing with us.
