Thank you for all your wonderful comments and emails. So many of you have asked me about the Lucy Boston blocks and what I used to put the blocks together.
First of all I used paper pieces.com to order my Lucy Boston pieces and templates. They do come in various sizes, I ordered the 1 inch honeycombs.
They also have the white templates, I received the green ones from a friend and I really liked the green ones better because of openings on the inside to draw template lines. I also use the Marti Mitchell where you can Preview what your center looks like, I ordered it through the Joann fabrics.
Your closet is probably full of wonderful fabrics to use, I always liked to have one fabric in each block that would show some kind of movement and one that was calm or a smaller print. Believe me you’re going to realize that one of the best parts of doing the blocks are auditioning the fabrics. I used A glue stick, I tried all kinds and ended up using the purple Elmers glue stick. They all work about the same. Some of you might baste your ends under, that is wonderful too, part of the great thing about putting the blocks together is to find the way that you like doing yours best. The last thing that I used was a little clip that was really helpful in holding my pieces together when I whipstitched them. I also learned that everyone puts them together in a different order, I started with the four center ones and then worked out from there. There are many different ways to put the blocks together and none of them are right or wrong, just find the way that you like.
Any other questions, just drop me an email.
