I might be absent from blogging, but I am sewing up a storm. I didn't want you to forget about the Farmer's Wife blocks in my absence! I know I still have 2 more blocks to post for March (#31 Evening Star and #56 Maple Leaf), but I wanted to post the first block for April.
Let's start April with # 107 Windblown Square. This block is identical to #102 Whirlpool with different color placement. I wanted you to cut this one while the trapezoid cutting was still fresh in your mind. It can be a little tricky to use the cut-away technique. It took me a few times before I felt confident. The trick is to remember that the stitch line of the easy angle should be on the corner of the piece, and the cutting line should be 1/4" less.
Instructions for the Whirlpool block are located in this post. It is exactly the same except use 3 colors instead of 2.
Enjoy the sunshine and the spring flowers. Have a lovely Easter.
