I am having so much fun with these blocks. I can no longer look at fabric without seeing if there is a Lucy block hiding in there! I also want to say a great big THANK YOU to all my Featherweight Quilt Company customers. I am so happy that yall are enjoying this journey along with me! It is so exciting to see everyones blocks popping up on facebook, blogs and flickr. I appreciate each and every one of you!.

Also, I have been planning a little project that I hope yall will want to participate in and there will be some great prizes for that! So be on the lookout in the near future for an announcement about that! 

 I cannot believe Autumn is already upon us. We have more hay to get out of the the fields and soon it will be corn pickin' time! And, we are still battling a few pink eye problems! It's been a hot and busy summer. 

Happy Stitching yall!
Thank yall for stopping by!

  1. You are doing a great job with the placement of the prints when piecing those blocks!

  2. So clever! Interesting how the prints can make so many different designs!

  3. I was so excited to hear I had won the threads from Aurifil. And thank you, Jan, for having the giveaway. I am looking forward to a package in the mail.

  4. Congratulations to all the winners!! And Nancy, you will love the Aurifil thread!! Very gracious giveaway, Jan!! All your new blocks (both of them) are wonderful as always!!

  5. Congrats to everyone that won. Jan, you are such an inspiration. I love your Lucy blocks. I joined the FB page and love all the ones I seen. I love sewing hexies and want to try a Lucy block now but not sure where to start. Anyway, I loved the Milking Cow fabric and bought some, thanks to seeing it on your blog first. Now I see it popping up all over. I made a milk can tablerunner from the pattern Mary Jane gave me and I also made a tumbler tablerunner like yours but with a navy dotted border. Well, it was not country enough for me so I appliqued some cow silhouettes on it and I'm so happy now. I still have to quilt them both. Thanks for all the inspiration!

    1. Thank you so much. You are showing as a no reply blogger so I have to answer you here instead of by email. I have beginner kits in my ETSY shop for the Lucy Boston blocks. And I lobe the Milk Cow Kitchen fabric collection. Sew cute. Sounds like you have been having fun with it too! Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stitching. xo jan
