Farmer's Wife 1920s Quilt Blocks 7 & 8

Block 7 – Birds-in-the-Air
Block 7 - Birds in the Air
My notes in the Farmer’s Wife book state “Very pretty in scraps but what a lot of work for a little block.” I paper-pieced two versions of this block – the one above in co-ordinated scraps and another really scrappy version below. I prefer the former.

Block 8 – Bouquet
Block 8 - Bouquet
Quite simply “very pretty block to paper-piece”. There is also a note from 2013 which states "Easy to patch".

So there you have it - another two blocks - one quick and easy and one a lot of work - but both very pretty.  Until next week.
