Contrary Wife & Calico Puzzle

If my husband knew the name of this block, he would probably want a whole quilt of it.  I've been know to be a little obstinate.  Everyone on the Internet is keeping track of the blocks based on the weeks.  Perhaps that would encourage me to go faster.

Both of these Blocks number #16 and #21 are just 6" 9 patches.  They are very similar.  The only difference is the placement of the pieces. 

#21 Contrary Wife

  • 5 - 2 1/2" squares
  • 4- 2" finished half squares (use 2 1/2" strip with the easy angle or your favorite method)
#16 Calico Puzzle

  • 5 - 2 1/2" squares
  • 4 - 2" finished half squares (use 2 1/2" strip with EA or favorite method
Contrary Wife
Calico Puzzle
Simply sew the half squares together first, then assemble in rows just like a simple 9 patch.
