|Block 78 - Old Maid|
Another week and more Farmer's Wife blocks. The blocks for the Very Kerry Berry sew-along were ....
Block 11 – Bea. Paper-pieced. My notes in the book read: “Went together well. Only just 6½ .”

Block 12 – Becky. Patched. “Easy, very easy. Great stash buster.”

For the Gnome Angel sew-along there were three blocks this week:
Block 49 – Katherine. I patched this block using quick corner triangles. “Very easy patchwork. Pretty Block.”

Block 78 – Old Maid. Initially I attempted to make this block using the templates provided on the CD. However, due to the bias diagonal cuts I lost my points so I reverted back to the tried-and-tested paper-piecing. I noted that it was important to “leave papers on when stitching sections or you will lose your points.” So I did and it turned out lovely.

Block 94 – Susannah. Like block 49 this was patched using those versatile quick corner triangles and a little bit of strip patchwork. “Nice easy strip patchwork.”
