Blocks 3 and 4 of the Farmers Wife QAL

Block 3 and 4.  Please join us via Brynwood Needleworks guided by Donna.

Fabric: French General, Maison de Garance, layer cake.

Farmers Wife Book: Amazon

Thread: Grey – Coats and Clarks 450

These are just too fun to do.  Seriously.  I love picking out the colors along with the preciseness of the sewing to make clean edges and a 6” block.  That’s the challenge.

I’ve been a little worried about how much material for the block so I did order another French General layer cake Maison de Garnance from The Quilted Castle.  They seem to have been the only online vendors to have it. 

I’m a gardener so it’s fun to make the baskets.  There are several baskets in this book that have flowers in them.  The challenge with that basket is hand sewing the biased cut piece so it looks good.  We shall see.

THE CUTENESS of the Block 4 is the color blocking.  So fun. 

Blocks 1, 2, 3 & 4
