I enjoyed making these two blocks this week and only used the seam ripper once!
First, Augusta. I like this block quite a bit. The contrast between the green and the brown is good.
and Aunt. I fussy cut the center but should and tried a little harder to fussy cut the side pieces!
Here are my 8 blocks to date (not the best photo.) You'll see for these last two blocks, I switched to a white/cream background. I think I will continue to mix it up a bit and not go all white/cream although I am tempted.
There are two blocks where there just isn't enough contrast between the light brown fabric and the taupe fabric. I don't think I'll redo those blocks - they were tough ones - but I will now really watch the contrast in the fabrics.
These blocks are from the book Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt .
There are two QAL underway right now - VeryKerryBerry and Gnome Angel. I'll be playing along with both!
