Rotherfield Greys Border, Stars and Lucy Boston

I hope all of you here in the U.S. are enjoying a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  The weather is beautiful, and many people here are enjoying a 3 day weekend to start off their summer.

I've been doing a little bit of stitching this past week.



I've added another border to my Rotherfield Greys quilt.  You can find the pattern for this quilt and many other wonderful quilts in Di Ford's book, Primarily Quilts.



I'm still making six pointed stars, and I've made a few more Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses blocks (book by Linda Franz).  I am sewing the stars along with Temecula Quilt Blog fussy cut Fridays.  

The red stripe I used in the stars and the outside round of Lucy Boston is this older piece from my stash called  Sturbridge Village Scarlet by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Fabrics.


I believe all of the fabrics in the star and Lucy Boston below are from Jo Morton.



The stripe is Spice Market by Jo Morton for Andover Fabrics.   The flowers I used in the center of the Lucy Boston block are Annandale by Jo Morton and are cut from the border print.



 I appreciate each and every one of you who visit and every comment that you leave.

Thanks for stopping by. 

I hope you are finding some time to stitch!

Your fussy cut stars are just lovely. I'll never think of striped fabric in quite the same way again.

Your Rotherfield Gray quilt is looking wonderful and I'm quite envious of it! I'd love to make it but "too many quilts, too little time".

That top is coming together beautifully. Medallion style quilts are becoming my favorite.

Lucy Boston blocks are amazing. Such precis cutting to achieve those straight lines for the frames and the stars too. Meticulous work at its best here. Stunning!

Forgot to tell you what a beautiful Rothersfield Grey quilt. Love Di Ford. I am looking forward to starting the projects of hers that I have selected. Also love Quiltmania magazine. Cancelled all of my other subscriptions and taking only Quiltmania. Hope they do not go to the dumb down patterns in the Amerian magazines. I love challenges and the Austrailian quilters work on difficult quilts.
