I have been on a roll with the Farmer's Wife blocks. They are challenging but that is why I am doing it, to get better at piecing.
This one took forever, 37 pieces in a 6" block! It is in no way perfect but hey that's what sashing is for, right? The point is to get better as I go along......we will see.
If you look closely at this one there are way too many weird triangles to try and piece this in any way that it is going to come out flat. So I went back and looked at Carla's blog to see how she handled it.
Paper pieced! that Carla is one smart cookie! It took a little bit of time to draft the blocks but no more than it would have been to try and make it.
I finished these blocks on my get away at the Poconos.
I have 2 rows sewed together so far. It is taking forever because I waited to iron them so the seams would work together after I decided the layout.
I love vintage cook books especially from the 1960's. This one is great! Lynne L you need this one in your collection.
My husband loves anything with apples in it. So I gave this a try. Great idea, one basic recipe with many variations.
Before I baked it.
It also has some recipes I have never heard of before......the stuffed beef heart almost made me gag.
This cracked me up! Especially because I am always worried about my family's morale! Oh my we have come a long, long way!
