I'm finished with the first partial block of Patchwork of the Crosses by Lucy Boston.
Most of the Lucy blocks I've seen have used civil war reproduction fabrics. All of the pieces are fussy cut and they're beautiful! I'm not fussy cutting all my pieces, some but not all.
And yes, I'm thread basting right through the paper onto the fabric. I like stability! I glue basted the stars in fussy cut stars and didn't like it. I've also experimented with the technique where you baste the corners of the fabric on the back of the papers, I didn't like that either. I want the papers to stay in the project until I decide I want them removed.
This afternoon I'll be working on the second block.
