I sure didn’t get very much accomplished today, only two more Farmer’s Wife blocks to be checked off. I had hoped for 3, but I’m happy to know that these 2 are done.
The first one was Cats and Mice (17), I ended up looking up the instructions from another book called Judy Hopkins 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks and made it from that. It came out ok. Luckily the sashing will cover up the edges.
The second block was Century of Progress (18) and I thought it was going to take me a century to make it. I had the paper-piecing template to make it so I set off to get it constructed. I’m not that good at paper piecing and hence I ripped out almost as much as I sewed. I got it all finished and it wasn’t until I was about to take the picture that I realized that I messed up. I thought it looked strange and this is why.
Fortunately I only had one long seam to rip out to make the correction.
Tomorrow I think I will work on an entirely different project!
There is the prettiest full moon out tonight and a very nice breeze! David said that tomorrow night is to be the best night – it will be closest to the earth and look the biggest it will be all this year.
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads, love and hugs.
