In a month full of new experiences and anxieties in my family life,
the Farmer's Wife blocks are pure sewing perfection.
I picked out 40 fabric combinations three months ago and cut most of the pieces.
So, now I just put things together.
No decisions to make.
No designs to ponder.
Just HST's, QST's, nesting seams, templates, lots of starch, press seams to the right, to the left, press open, trim to square, etc.
Then step back and admire the simple pleasure of a 6" traditional block design.
What a feeling of accomplishment in these unsettled days.
