If you do an internet search on "Lucy Boston" you will find thousands of hits about her novels, most famously the Green Knowe series. You will also discover many links to her patchwork quilts. made famous through her daughter-in-law's book, The Patchworks of Lucy Boston.
I've long admired Lucy's Patchwork of the Crosses quilt and finally succumbed on the weekend, when I purchased templates. I opted for the two-inch size (rather than the smaller one-inch set) because I wanted larger pieces to hand-piece. No EPP for me!
I'll be using a variety of black and white prints plus solid turquoise. Here's my first block, which was a breeze to piece. (The background in this photo is a rug - not the fabric I'll be using in the quilt.) This is the perfect sewing project - cut a block in the morning and sew it in the evening. Brilliant.
