Yep! But, I did :
Out of the 111 blocks inspired by letters from 1920's farm wives, I completed:
32 blocks and 18 more with great imperfections, which I chopped in half to create this:
|Made in 2011 Finished Size: 32: x 40:|
If you are laughing in understanding, thank you! I still laugh in reflection of my Farmer's Wife "experience" as I refer to it. I didn't know better at the time. I was a newbie and a fun group of women were gathering every Wednesday night a few years ago for a Farmer's Wife class. I was thrilled at the opportunity to cut into my ever growing collection of 30's fabric. "I'll do it!", I found myself saying.
Well, as the class progressed, I soon found myself exclaiming: "Are you kidding me!" as I learned I was suppose to cut 36 little itty bitty triangles and sew them into a 5 1/2" block. Need less to say, as the weeks progressed, I soon found myself just plain ol' skipping the blocks with there "million little triangles" and before long, I was bringing cupcakes to class instead of my sewing machine, sitting around visiting with friends as I worked on my Hexagons!! LOL!!
Not wanting to be wasteful combined with a strong desire to just "wrap this one up", I sat myself down and began sewing together what I had. No sashing. No planning. I was pleasantly surprised at what evolved. I think it ending up making an adorable baby quilt! And truth be told, I did enjoy reading all the excerpts from the wives letters. That has to count for something doesn't it!? LOL!!
With "lemon" smiles,
