And Then There Were Three!

I have to say these little blocks are very addictive....although I am only using my stash for the blocks, background or joining block fabric is required. On the horns of a dilemma....if I do all the blocks and then decide it leaves one mammoth job to join them all....decisions, decisions!! Part of me is telling me to be true to the pattern and paper piece the whole thing and the other part is saying applique them....hhmm! Help! I knew I should have kept on ignoring them.
I am also sewing the binding down on a project for Country Threads which is due VERY soon....instructions are next!!!
So not a lot to share here.....off to continue pounding the keyboard....oh a have a nice cuppa!
Aren't my Crotons pretty....just love their fiery foliage! Enjoy your day.
Namaste & Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  7. Nice crotons, must get a cutting off you one day!
    The blocks are, of course, gorgeous. Big decision there - I was trying to figure out what colour a background fabric might be, and failed miserably. You will do it beautifully.

  9. I think they will look lovely whichever method you choose, but I think I'd lean towards piecing the whole thing.

  18. Those gorgeous blocks would look great paper pieced or appliqued. I dont think you can go wrong no matter which method you pick!

  19. Lucy Boston blocks are looking very, very nice. Being a very busy woman, maybe you should consider the fastest option.
