Stars and Lucy Boston

I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weekend.  This is my latest six pointed star from the Temecula Quilt Company blog sew along.  

My camera decided to stop working a few days ago.  It was the camera that I'd used since I started blogging.  So I've done a bit of research and bought a Nikon Coolpix 3500.  I wanted something that I could mostly point and shoot and would fit easily into my purse.  I've been practicing with it the last couple of days, and I think I've finally decided that I should probably put the disk in my laptop and read the instruction manual.

Here is another Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses block.  I'm making one block a month along with a couple of friends.

And....three more six pointed stars.

This is the fabric I used in the bottom star in the photo above and the first star in this post.  I really love Jason Yenter's fabric lines.

The top right star is from a piece by Judie Rothermel. 

 The top left star is from Jo Morton's Amelia Collection.

A couple photos of my day lilies with the new camera.  

Thanks to each and every one of you who stops by my blog to read what I'm up to.  

Thanks for visiting!

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today. 


  1. Simply stunning fussy cutting. I think these two quilts are going to be absolutely gorgeous.

  3. I love your fussy cutting.... Really makes for stunning stars!!! I have the Nikon Coolpix camera and love the quality photos and the fact it's so small.

  4. Beautiful 6 pointed stars! I have what is probably the dumbest question ever... I see that all the star points have little "tongues" of fabric sticking out on the ends
    . What do you do with those when you applique them to the background? Do you cut them off first or try to tuck them in somehow? I've obviously never done this technique, LOL. Thanks for any info. Carla :-)

  5. You made me laugh. I saw myself doing exactly the same you did. Trying to figure out the camera and THEN get the manual out of the box. LOL. People are funny mammals!!
    You have found the perfect fabric for making AMAZING six points stars. I love each and every one. Gorgeous work LuAnn!

  6. I just love your fussy cutting blocks..........

  7. I love you Fussy Stars especially the Jason Yenter star such a great fabric.!!
    The pictures are beautiful.

    Have a nice weekend.

  8. I would love a smaller camera ... something to fit into my purse. I find I use my iPhone because it's so handy to have with me all the time, but the quality of photos isn't quite as good as I'd like. It looks like your camera takes outstanding pictures. Love, love, love your POTC block and your 6 pointed stars .... gorgeous fabrics!

  9. As always.....your fussy cutting is gorgeous !!
    Love your blocks.

  10. Funny! I do the same thing after husband tells me "if all else fails read the directions" - you would think after 70 years I would have learned.

    Fanulous fabric choices for your stars - we don't see much of Jason Yenter fabrics around here - amazing line! Will be on the hunt as we travel this summer.

  11. Hola LuAnn, muy bonitos trabajos, a partir de ahora me llevo el enlace de tu blog al mio para poder seguir tus trabajos, hace poco me he aficionado al patchwork y me gusta mucho aunque todavía tengo mucho que aprender sobre todo con la máquina de coser. Un saludo

  12. You've done a great job on the blocks and your fabrics are quite interesting.

  13. You never disappoint, LuAnn. All are beautiful... I'm enjoying those six pointed stars. A friend is making those too, and between seeing hers and yours, I see six pointed stars in my future! What's another hand sewing project, anyway???
    Have fun with your new camera... remember when they didn't need a manual? Those days are gone forever!

  14. All of your blocks are wonderful. You are a master at fussy cutting!
