I was determined to stitch today, so here is my interpretation of the first block in row one of Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses. Much to my surprise the very center has a tiny blue circle – unplanned. Also unplanned was the stripe around the block that give the block a square look. I can only imagine that perhaps Lucy held the same level of excitement at the completion of each block. She had to be a “master” quilter.
