Yesterday I made Block 18, Farmer's Daughter
Today I made Block 19, a combination Shoo Fly and Cross 4
And finally, Block 20, Dove In A Window
I had a few adventures with these last two. I did the blue one first and was trying to use some HST's I already had on hand. That gave me slightly smaller dove units so I enlarged the center plain pieces a bit. Then when I was trimming my brand new HST's for the red and green block my mind wandered and I miscut them, resulting in even smaller dove units. So I punted and added coping strips on the insides. Made me feel very frugal and very 1800ish. LOL.
Speaking of which, I also made this week's block for the 1880 Sampler Quilt, called Four Anchors
I love that she is making these so easy without paper piecing.
I'm sure like me all of you are sending prayers out to the many thousands affected by today's earthquake and tsunami. The news is heartbreaking.
Now for some KU basketball.
