I spent the better part of this week catching up and making blocks for the Farmers Wife Quilt Along. I know I don't have to but I hate start a project one step behind. It just sets me up for a fail later. Besides it was a rough week and I really needed some quilt therapy.
Here is what I have done so far....
I redid this one from last week, because the color combination was truly bothering me. Besides, I think I really want to have a bit of the off white in every block, to keep the look cohesive, and the previous block had none. Now, I am happy. :)
Did anyone else have trouble with this one? I had to do it a couple of times. It keep shrinking down to under a 6" square. Cutting out all 32 triangles each time was not fun either. Thankfully when I was just about to throw in the towel.... the last one I did, came out correctly.
Here is what they look like together.
This has been a fun learning experience for me. I have dusted off some of some the old piecing skills I haven't used in years and learned some new ones.
