I have been sewing on my Octagon Fish Quilt and had to take a few minutes to get a couple of the
Farmer's Wife blocks together. This one is super easy. So, I just took a couple photos.
I cut the template out. I cut four strips of each. Then, attached the 3 strips in a set. I attached the sets together top and bottom. The last seam was in the middle. Don't forget to pin the middle.
This block is growing on me. So far, I have been using all my scraps.
It's not my favorite, but that's ok. They can't all be my favorites.
I jut wanted to show how I cute my triangles out. I cut them from a strip.
It's pretty simple. I always keep in mind that the bias edge, bias grain is across the fabric, love to shift.
Here's all my pieces.
I like to lay them right out next to me on my table. When I was sewing in the kitchen, I used to used a tv tray. They are perfect! I sewed the bottom together. You can see that the I am working on piecing the top section. I will sew the other side. They will be overlapping where the points meet.
It's all done for today.
I got to get the kids lunch ready, and then maybe do a bit of cleaning. I promised the kids we would go downtown to the fountain pad and let them play.
