Lucy Boston

 Even though the heat wave in Melbourne continues with an other day of 43 degrees a dedicated group of ladies met at Somerset Patchwork to start their journey with Lucy Boston.

Some ladies are using English paper piecing (epp)
and some are using templates both  available at Somerset Patchwork.
We used the book Patchwork of the Crosses by Linda Franz to get us started.
As you can see we all had a busy day. If you would like to join us next time please contact Somerset Patchwork for future dates.

Sidmouth Part 3

This is the linen fabric I have used as the border for my quilt using the Sidmouth panel.
Yes it does have snakes and insects.
The colours are just perfect, you just have to forget there are snakes.
Ok maybe a bit hard.
Excuse the  toes, I need longer arms.

What is it about cats and quilts, even on a 41 degree day. Cats love fabric!
Happy sewing (in the heat)   Sue
