We are on week eight for the Very Kerry Berry so the blocks for this week are:
Block 15 – Blossom. I paper-pieced this using 2½” scrap squares for the blossom on the tree. My journal notes in the book read “a lot of work but easy enough”. I really love the scrappy look.

Block 16 – Bonnie. This is a simple patchwork block that has already been covered on week one of the Gnome Angel sew-along.

For the Gnome Angel sew-along there were three blocks this week:
Block 1 – Addie. This was the very first paper-pieced block for the Very Kerry Berry sew-along at the end of September so an easy start to my week.
Block 57 – Margaret. I patched this block using half-square-triangles. Notes read “Pretty block”. I love this block and really enjoyed making it.

Block 62 – Milly. Another half-square-triangles block but by the end of the block I was a littled tired of making them. Notes read “All those points and seams!”.

I have been making more blocks as part of my Block-a-Day project and you can see them all on my Farmer’s Wife page. They are also on my Farmer’s Wife Pinterest board.
I am in the throws of joining the blocks made so far and I have decided to set half straight and half on-point. The inspiration for this is Lolly Quiltz who has a really good way of setting the blocks. Lolly cuts the sashing bigger than needed and you trim your blocks to size - this is perfect if some of your blocks are not quite 6½" or they are not square.
I’m still having fun and am loving both sew-alongs. The tutorials are brilliant and the community for both is so helpful.
Until next time...................
