Another block...Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses...

 I finished up another Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses block.  It's not sewn together in the photo but it is now.  I was just trying to figure out the best placement for my colors.  This is my 5th block. 
 I had actually forgotten about this hexie project but some of them had been cut and prepped for a while.  I was thinking at the time that this would be a lap quilt.  I have oodles of them prepped so I will probably sew a few of them together between my cross blocks. 
 Last week Hunter had an awards ceremony for some state testing.  I'm so proud of him.  He received an award and trophy.  They were also supposed to receive t-shirts too but they had not arrived at the time. 
 The next day he came home from school with this trophy for being on the Academic Team.  He is a good student, just stubborn sometimes but then again he is 11 so I guess that is normal.  :)
 Here is his Geography project that he had to do last week.  He had spent weeks doing his research and getting everything written out.  Wouldn't you figure that the night before when he was trying to type and print everything out, the printer decides to die!  :(  Thank goodness for big brother that was still in town.  Andrew ran by Walmart and picked up a new printer so he could finish it.  Hunter was in such a panic, I felt sorry for him.  BTW....he did an amazing job on his project and the teacher sent a wonderful little note home with him.  :)
 That's all for now.  Today is election day so Hunter is home from school.  He had a friend spend the night last night.  Andrew is working and Richard is still asleep.  He worked last night and works again tonight.  I will be getting him up real soon so he can eat and get ready for work!

congrats to Hunter - and love your handwork!!! So pretty -and I like the hexies that way - sometimes the flower garden is too much for me, but this looks like it could be good with a mish-mash of scraps!

Beautiful block, Kristie.
That is a different hexie design than I have seen. And you always choose such warm and lovely fabrics.
Congrats to Hunter on all of his accomplishments! Must have a good mom! : )
