Farmer's Wife 1920s Blocks 46 and 47

Block 46 was a lovely block to paper-piece.  It is created from two idential halves.  It turned out perfectly to size and so pretty.

Inset seams are always tricky - more so if foundation paper-piecing.  English paper-piecing really is brilliant in this regard but as I am paper-piecing I tackled the four inset seams with gusto.  They are not perfect but they are more than good enough for me.  Notes read "Very tricky with the inset seams - second attempt worked well!".

That is another two blocks "done and dusted" as we say in England! Until next time ....


  1. I'm really enjoying your fabric selections, Amanda. Your blocks are so pretty and fresh-looking. Good job on those pesky inset seams!

    1. Thank you Leslie. I love using scraps up. I never seem to tire of playing with fabric. Are you joining in?

  2. Thank you Cheryll. Are you making the blocks?
