Another two blocks in the books!  I am not sure I how I was able to get these accomplished with all the sewing for Halloween I did and not to mention, all the stocking orders I had waiting to be sewn.  I got week 5's Farmer's Wife 1930's Quilt Sampler blocks finished.

Block 11 : #41 Granny

This block and I were not getting along as well as I would have liked.  I used the paper piecing method for this one, thinking that it would help me keep seams straighter and make it go together easier.  Not sure how or why I came to that conclusion after reading everyone else's posts on the block.  But soon I joined the ranks of Granny's wrath.  I made this one twice.  The first time, I wasn't pay attention and sewed the block all back wards.  The second time, I got it all together, and realized that there was a large cut in one of the blocks.  There was no hiding it.  So, I unpicked the first and put it together.  It came  out OK.  Not sure on the choice of colors/fabrics I used.  But it was done, seams matched up the best that I could get them to, and I was sticking with it.

Block 12 : #45 Jenny

Jenny went together so much easier for me.  I am pretty sure it took more time to pic out the colors than anything for this one.  I am enjoying how the birds came to play in it and the colors.  I used the templates from the book to make this block.

Week 6 here I come!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween last weekend.  Ours was great albeit a little cold and rainy.  Though it didn't seem to bother the kids any who wanted to trick-or-treat no matter what.
