I couldn’t resist jumping in and making this block [49] Katherine as it is the nearest to my own name and looking at it I was sure I could simplify the cutting and sewing which I did. Stitch and flip with rectangles and squares instead of tiny triangles, HSTs and awkward shapes.

It also means no need to print out the templates – saving paper and ink! I wonder how many more can be simplified. It will be interesting to see how many of the guest bloggers over at verykerryberry will do so.

Kerry  said that she will paper piece most of the blocks and has already made some. They can be seen in her review for ‘The Farmer’s Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt’ by Laurie Aaron Hird which you can find here. They are beautiful and I have to say that my piecing is not as accurate as Kerry’s, but then the original makers of these blocks would not have all the gadgets we have today so mine will definitely look more ‘homemade’ then other people’s will!
