Another two blocks in the books! I am not sure I how I was able to get these accomplished with all the sewing for Halloween I did and not to mention, all the stocking orders I had waiting to be sewn. I got week 5’s Farmer’s Wife 1930’s Quilt Sampler blocks finished.
Block 11 : #41 Granny
This block and I were not getting along as well as I would have liked. I used the paper piecing method for this one, thinking that it would help me keep seams straighter and make it go together easier. Not sure how or why I came to that conclusion after reading everyone else’s posts on the block. But soon I joined the ranks of Granny’s wrath. I made this one twice. The first time, I wasn’t pay attention and sewed the block all back wards. The second time, I got it all together, and realized that there was a large cut in one of the blocks. There was no hiding it. So, I unpicked the first and put it together. It came out OK. Not sure on the choice of colors/fabrics I used. But it was done, seams matched up the best that I could get them to, and I was sticking with it.
Block 12 : #45 Jenny
Jenny went together so much easier for me. I am pretty sure it took more time to pic out the colors than anything for this one. I am enjoying how the birds came to play in it and the colors. I used the templates from the book to make this block.
Week 6 here I come! Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween last weekend. Ours was great albeit a little cold and rainy. Though it didn’t seem to bother the kids any who wanted to trick-or-treat no matter what.
P.S.S. -This quilt-a-long is being put on by Fat Quarter Shop & the lovely lady behind Gnome Angel with the help of some other amazing bloggers. Following the Farmer’s Wife 1930’s Sampler Quilt by Laurie Aaron Hird.
