Having spent Sunday prepping more Farmers Wife blocks, today was the first chance to sew a few more. I managed 3. They are getting harder now so machine sewing them will become very difficult. With that in mind, I read up paper blocking. The first tutorial blew my mind but the one I read today made more sense although that method will require more planning in order to 'fussy' cut the fabric. Until I have to revert to that method, machine sewing is still my preferred option.
My blocks today were reasonably easy but although I tried really really hard, some bits are not perfect.
These need better pressing and squaring up but I'm leaving that until I've made them all.
I finished cutting the last of the blocks I brought with me. What to do next!
I decided to lay out the hexies to see if I could make 4 seat back covers. They did.
After cutting up 5 fat quarters I made enough hexies as you can see with just 4 left over. I don't have the right colour of thread with me to begin sewing them, so I've bundled them up ready for another day. Just have to work out how to back them though.
I have lots of material with me so tomorrow I'll have a go at working out more blocks from the group's matrix of releases. That should keep me busy then it's home time on Monday.
