I spent last evening, and about an hour this afternoon, working on the Grandmother's Choice block of the week. I did today's, and the ones for the past 2 weeks, as well. I'm still one block short.
The Little Red Schoolhouse. I paper pieced this one, since I really didn't want to be bothered with all the odd shaped templates.
Little Boy's Breeches. This one was a real challenge, and it took a bit of thought before deciding to paper piece this one, as well. It worked fairly well, except there was an oops where the blue pants fabric didn't come down far enough to be covered by the center square. So, I covered the oops with the red square, and then put the brown square on top of that, and appliqued them both down. Now it looks like the pants have a yoke. I didn't do the inset corner squares, either.
I am liking it so far too! I love the way you creatively 'saved' your block instead of trashing and starting again.ReplyDelete
GREAT save! You done good, girl!! They are looking fabulous, too. I need to sit down and just catch up. Someday! :)ReplyDelete
