This goes with that at Lucy's..............

For the Aussies I digress the blog title a slight twist on the old "This goes with that at Susans" advertising line.............
anyway back to Lucy.............
thought I had shared this but I hadn't so this is how I put my Lucy Boston blocks together..............
I join centre pairs and then put a green in this case and repeat for below then join those 2 sections and add the other 2 greens to make the section below.........
 I pair up the outer fabrics sometimes these have one directional prints etc and it is easier to think as I join them in pairs then as I put each one onto the block........
then it all goes together...........OMG when I first started I sewed wrong bits in or joined the wrong angles...........thank goodness I found a system.........well it works very well for me anyway..............
then  I add the units I have prepared of creams as per previous post........you don't need the little squares on all points.........
then we grab the fillers (see this post)
And this goes with that.........and Lucy starts to come together..........
Ignore the bottom left block as it is a corner and I am working that bit out............
I'll show you how I am finishing it off later..........
It needs more sewing and I am banned from Lucy at the moment.................
I moved it apart a bit so you can see the outline of each block...........
And just a bit closer..........
OK enough of Lucy..........I would not have done it today but we have free data with Telstra today so I have been getting some computer stuff out of the way.......updates etc..........I think they upped the speed because this morning mine was going SOOOOO fast for us..........not the case this arvo...........
usually we have such limited amount I am taking advantage.......
And it is hot so I am inside with the air con...............
I got one of the flowers finished and now April is done.............yep April last year........
better late then never?
Natures Journey.............

And my beautiful feathered friend Jenny @ Bird on the Border has been visiting for a few days..........the Chookshed was buzzing.............more from Jen then me but hey I got some sewing done.............made the design board above for Jenny while she was here.......
sadly she had to go home...........even if she banned me from Lucy and flogged me along with Natures Journey..................feeling heatly and reinspired with many projects and some time to do them..........
Catch you later.......

  4. Love your Lucy Boston blocks they are looking fabulous. Great to have some company in the sewing room...especially when she gets the whip out.

  5. Sewing with a friend is always inspiring and gets one going, doesn't it? I love your Nature's Journey blocks and your Lucy is coming along nicely too, and I can't believe Sussan is still doing the "this goes with that" ads as they already did them when we lived in oz more than 20 years ago)!
