I have a soft spot for American history, and the book The Farmer's Wife I bought a long time ago. I even have made some blocks. However, I prefer rotary cutting, not the hundred or so templates on the cd.
Then I happened to find Karen Walker's blog. She has converted the blocks into modern rotary cutting, and that's the reason why I now have restarted. It is so inspiring! And this time I go for 30th repro fabric, bright and cheerful. I will tell more about this history in another blog post.
Listening to this very good novel while sewing, that's nice!
Aurofil block for May, in Ruby fabric.
And here, the classic block of the month, look to this blog!
The Dutchman's Puzzle.
Det har blitt litt blokk-sying denne veka og. Eg er med på nokre månads-alongar, der eg syr større blokker i moderne stoff. Dette er verkeleg moro. Har du ikkje prøvd å sy Flying Geese på denne måten før, må du prøve, det er genialt.
