Lucy Boston

The inspiration for my version of Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses has come from a quilt Lucy made for Colin Tilney in the mid to late 1970's.  I loved the way she used the brown fabric to frame her blocks and wanted to incorporate that in my quilt. 

I will add more blocks as I complete them.
