Lucy challenge.....

I have been thinking for a bit  it would be cool to make one Lucy Boston block with the one piece of fabric..............the challenge was set I had this fabric and Sonia and a beautiful but terrible piece...........(the repeat was no quiet enough)
so many options..........
what to decide
some got rejected.........

this one has 1/2 and 1/2 options
still not completely happy i kept cutting and playing

 
this is what I finally decided on.............took hours and hours but it was fun seeing what we could both get out of our fabrics.............I missed getting pics of Sonias and it is funny that we see different options in the fabrics even after looking at them for ages..............
After taking hours and hours to get those done we hooked in to some serious block production.............we both have 7 cut each.........it was great fun digging into someone elses stash and seeing what we could swap around............still got a few bits on my design board who don't have a home yet but cleared some out..............OMG the mess...........bits of fabric everywhere........
It's been great to play with Sonia @ Forever Always and Lucy for a short time..............Sadly I have to go to work and Sonia has to move onto another destination............
Mind you I can hardly walk with from the cramp I got in my calf on Sunday morning.........
More GDITC soon...............
Catch you later.......
