The sun had gone down by the time I finished making the last two blocks for this week's Farmer's Wife Sampler so my pictures are a strange color. Sorry about that....but, here they are and I'm pretty proud of the way they turned out. I don't even WANT to know how many hours I spent on them though!
First up, is block #47, called Homemaker. This block is not for the faint of heart (neither is homemaking, really) even when you use foundation piecing like I did. The reason...two words: Inset Seams. Whew! Glad to have that one out of my hair!
The second challenging block of the day weighs in with 68 pieces-- all inside a little six inch block, people!! Star Gardener, block #87, is pretty but time consuming. I doubt that many gardeners in the 1920's had time to make many of these lovelies, I'm just sayin'!
If feels good to be caught up on my Farmer's Wife blocks and like anything else, once I got started, I found my rhythm!
See you next week for two more garden-themed blocks. (That top green/red block kinda looks like it ate too many Christmas cookies, doesn't it!) Bye.
