My first three blocks. Numbers four and five (Contrary Wife and Big Dipper) are ready to be pieced tonight. To my surprise these blocks are coming out to measure 6.5 inches. I usually doubt my ability to make blocks this size and smaller. But if you piece precisely and measure, measure, measure, it seems as if you can be successful.
I am looking forward to making more of these smaller blocks from "The Farmer's Wife" Series.
This and That (Not sewn together yet - looks better this way!)
Ok not so good on the first block - Gentlemen's Fancy - two good sides and too sides need a little TLC! The picture is gone from the blog and even though the block measured 6.5", the block is in the repair pile. The points need to meet a little bit closer on one side than it did. Only when I took the picture did I realize how terrible it looked!
See what I mean about tiny blocks and in my world 6" is SMALL!!!
Have a great night!
