Slow Sunday Stitching with Lucy

Today is my first day for Slow Sunday Stitching.....don't you just love that concept? Come home from church and lunch out with the family, change into your comfy clothes, prop your feet up and stitch. So that is just what I did.

I am linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy's Quilts.

Since I have chosen the background for my Lucy Boston blocks, I decided that I had better start adding background as I go.  There are as many background blocks around a Lucy block as there are in the design section......twenty four!!

This is what I stitched on today.........

And here are blocks nine and ten with background attached......

The background blocks are, at least, simple to cut.  I will be adding to the blocks I have already completed a bit at a time while I continue to stitch more blocks. I have four cut and ready for basting and assembly.  They are simple to work on when I only have small slices of time.

Take Care,


  1. These blocks are a lot of fun! I like how the fussy cutting adds extra interest to the design too!

  2. Such intricate and pretty blocks to enjoy making...thanks for linking up!

  3. These are just beautiful! I have yet to master fussy cutting in the way you have. You give me lots of ideas here as a stroll through your blog. Thank you for sharing.
