What I have been working on " LUCY "

I fell in love with "LUCY " the first time I saw it on Thelmas blog.
I am not into bright halloween fabrics and this quilt just fit the bill for me :-D

I did not order Carrie's quilt kit because it sold out in a heart beat .
I looked thru my stash and decided to use my American Gothic fabric I had for the black and I ordered a few fig tree , scrumptious & boo crew fabrics for the orange. The gray fabric is the the little Black Dress 2 line of fabric.

I am not making my quilt the 74" x 74" that the pattern calls for.  I eliminated 2 rows from the side and the bottom so mine should before around 60 " x 60 " or so .

May I say how fun this quilt is to make and so easy .

I only have 5 more of the 25 patch blocks to make and then I can sew it together

We are supposed to have rain this week and I could not be happier :-D

Happy Sewing



  1. I absolutely love it, Sue! Great choices for fabric, too. Are the 25 patches made in strip sets?

  2. Love your version of Lucy!! The fabrics are just wonderful.

  3. I just love your Lucy! We've had rain most every day for almost a week. I'm ready for some sunshine but alas the next 3-4 days will have rain.

  4. Super cute. Love the use of the gray. It softens the black and orange. Hope you get more sewing done on your rainy days.

  5. Lucy is luscious! You did a great job pulling the fabrics together.

  6. Love IT! Great job on your fabric choices, it looks just as spooky as my Lucy! I like your size, if I make another one, I'll go smaller.

  7. That is a great quilt. I love the colours in it. Now I'm feeling tempted too. I can see it in Christmas colours, spring colours .... oh dear, now look what you've done!

  8. Your LUCY is looking gorgeous! I too love your fabric choices for this quilt.
