Patchwork of the Crosses

I've flown the coop ... as you read this I'm on my way to Houston for Quilt Market! It's always a fun time at market seeing (and buying!) what's new for the shop and I can't wait to see all the fabulous quilts in the show.  If I see any Lucy Boston quilts, I'll take pictures and post them when I get back. In the meantime, I hope you won't mind the abbreviated post this week.

I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the blocks others have done. Some of the blocks are done with fabrics from our kits, but many are done from stash fabrics.  All of them are absolutely beautiful.

These are some of the blocks done by Carolyn who says she has become very addicted to paper piecing:

Jackie has enjoyed using the fabrics from her kits in different ways:

Kathleen has been using fabrics from her stash:

I love this block Kathleen did with the "two-tone" blue.  This look is achieved by strip piecing two different fabrics, and pressing the seams open to avoid bulk.  Lay the center of the acrylic template on the seam line and cut.  Continue making the honeycomb shapes as you would with a single piece of fabric.
Sarah has a beautiful collection of blocks.  She, too, has become very addicted to paper piecing and is working on several hexagon projects at the same time.

Love the unique setting Joanne achieved with fabrics from the first kit we sent in April.
These are just a few of the blocks posted on our Pinterest Board.  Check out the board to see many more stunning blocks.

See you next week with a report from Houston!  Hopefully I'll have time to get some blocks pieced on the trip.
