Lucy Boston, that is! It is hard to believe that I have been at this for over a year and I have not started to lose interest! This is way longer than my ADD usually lets me stay focused on one thing. It is just so cool when the pieces come together and create such awesome patterns. I made a few blocks before I was convinced to start kitting them, so I have quite a few done, or at least planned. The blocks I have done for kits are below. To make the kits, I merely glue the fabric on the papers and take a picture, so a good number of these are not really done. I am really working at catching up right now, though, since I have started Karen Styles, "Mrs. Billings Coverlet." An English Paper Pieced Medallion Quilt. Coincidentally, Block 33 is made from Karen's new fabric line, "Victoria Park."
If you are interested in joining me in this obsession, you can sign up to receive 2 block kits every 3-4 weeks. Kits are usually $5.99 each, but occasionally $6.99 if I use a fabric with a large repeat that requires more fabric to make the block. In the kits you will receive enough fabric to make the block, and some extra which you should be able to complete some of the setting blocks out of. If you decide to do the whole quilt, you will need to make 56 blocks. I will keep kitting blocks as long as there is interest. You will be responsible for purchasing your own background fabric and a contrast fabric that is used in the setting. Other items you will need are listed on our website. Feel free to call the shop if you have questions - (847) 516-7911.
Here is a picture of the original quilt which was made by Lucy Boston in the 1950's.
