wisely cowardly declined to ride along and stayed home to clean the house.
Much more preferable than becoming toasted briquette.
Last week I was working hard on a top secret project (Christmas gift). Now that I've finished that, I decided to catch up on the Grandmother's Choice blocks. I had fallen way behind! Barbara is on block 14, so I had twelve blocks to get sewn in order to be up to date.
|All caught up! |
A lot of these blocks are pretty challenging and that is what makes them so fun to work on.
This one is a little boring (the fabrics--not the inset seams)
I may have to redo it with more interesting fabrics.
I hand pieced this block. It seemed easier than machine piecing.
|Aunt Eliza's Star|
This one is done with English Paper Piecing using diamonds.
|Rocky Road to Kansas|
Same block as #2 but with string piecing.
|Little Red Schoolhouse|
|Little Boy's Breeches|
More set in seams--ach! These are little pants in honor of Amelia Bloomer.
