Well today the 7th Block: Number 24 – Coral was chosen on the infamous FQS Farmers Wife 1930s Sew Along hosted by Gnome Angel.
Coral – is a great 6.5″ block that allows you to highlight your fussy cutting.
This is the first block I haven’t Foundation Paper Pieced. I created 4 Flying geese blocks for the star points instead of cutting the half square triangles ! Why ?? I’m not exactly sure but a few less seams is not a bad thing !
As this is the 7th block, I pulled the blocks out of my folder that I have finished to date – and WOW !!
This Quilt is going to be bright and vibrant !! At first I wasn’t going to set the blocks on point like the book : The farmers Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt by Laurie Hird sets out. However now I love it !!
I’m not sure what I’m going to use as sashing just yet – but with this set up – on point, narrow sashing might work really well ??
So far we have completed Blocks 8, 12, 13, 14, 16, 20, 24. Only 91 to go – easy !! lol !!
It is not too late to join the ride !!
Until next week…..
