Hello cute people...and a Happy September!
I have 4 more Farmers Wife blocks on the design wall in my studio...these blocks are so much fun to make and are so simple when using the Easy Corner triangles method.
All four of the blocks use the same method that I have shown in my FWQAL tutorials...so if you have been following them...you should have no problem at all drafting and sewing these blocks.
#31 Evening Star
Blue = Sew Cherry
Red = Sew Cherry
White = Redwork Romance
Center square = Simply Sweet
Green Dot = Sew Cherry
Yellow Gingham = ?
White = Nantucket summer
#12 Broken Sugar Bowl
Dk. Pink = Aun Grace Authentic
Lt. Pink = ?
Brown Gingham = Sew Cherry
Brown Dot = Mama's Feedsacks
White = Nantucket Summer
#33 Farmer's Puzzle
Dark Green = Nicey Jane
Light Green = ?
Blue = Timeless Treasures
Stripe = ?
When I drafted this last block...I took the liberty of changing the measurements just a smidge to make it easier for rotary cutting.
I wanted the very center to be a different fabric also(dk.green)...
it finishes at 1" x 1" and the light green rectangles finish at 1" wide also.
I cut the 4 blue daisy rectangles 1 3/4" x 3" and the stripe squares to make the easy corner triangles 1 3/4" x 1 3/4".
Hope this helps!
I'm still enjoying the book and the essays by the Farmer's wives...all are fun to read.
Have a lovely weekend my friends!...
as for me...It's a long holiday weekend and so
I am loading up the trailer for one last camping trip of the season...the mountains are once again calling my name:)
