I really want to finish up the Farmer's Wife project so I can free myself of the guilt of unfinished business.
Today's block is 19 - Checkerboard. It came out perfect on my second try. I don't know what I did wrong the first time, but my seam allowance must have been too big. Second time around, it was the perfect size.
- 9 colored squares 1 7/8"
- 4 light squares 1 7/8"
- 8 triangles cut with Companion Angle 1 7/8" strip
- 4 triangles cut with EA 1 1/2" strip (can use 1 7/8" strip and trim down if you prefer
Sew the squares together in rows pressing toward the colors
Stay tuned for block #13 Buckwheat. It is very similar to Checkerboard with the addition of some half squares.
I am hoping this is the beginning of many more productive days.
