Its Farming Friday, and I am still on track making my blocks for my Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt.
Having decided to blog every Friday about my FWSQ and the blocks I have made is certainly motivating me to make sure I have something to show of my FWSQ blocks, so I have a really good feeling I will get this quilt made sooner rather than later!
This block was made using a paper pieced pattern from the FWSQ Yahoo Group.
TIP: If your have never done any paper piecing before then I would recommend choosing an easy block to start with. This block is a easy block to paper piece.

A very easy block – I had no problems figuring out the quilt maths for this one!
This block was not quite so easy as all the rest,with all those half square triangles, it makes it a little difficult to press.
TIP: With this block make sure you press your seams open.
If your making FWSQ Blocks let me know so I can see what you have been up to. And if your not then why not join in. A new group has just started on Flickr for the Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt 2014. It’s a lot of fun joining in sewing with other people making the same blocks, and its interesting to see how the same block can look made with different fabric.
Have a Great Weekend and Thanks for Stopping by.
