Note to self: You need light bulbs.
I started off the afternoon honestly worried about the blocks I was going to make. Mainly because I opened the book, saw block 65 and immediately sent a picture of it to Instagram with a note about how the Farmer's Wife hates me.
While I thought about the tiny triangles that my machine was sure to devour, I skipped ahead to 66 and 67:
I love how in comparison to the other blocks 66 reads as muted. I think I'm going to need to make some more specific fabric choices in the future to make more that have that same overall tone.
With two blocks safely completed, I went back to 65 which is called Peaceful Hours:
See that center ring of white triangles.
The whole block is 6.5".
Itty bitty triangles.
That one on the bottom got eaten a little.
My machine's a monster.
While I was sewing, I was chatting with the very lovely Diane on Instagram.
She had a brilliant idea to piece the block in more of a wonky star method.
So this block is my +1.
I made some of them super wonky.
I love it.
There might be more of them. Maybe a whole quilt worth if I think of the right fabrics.
I never would have thought of it. I'm so thankful for Twitter and Instagram and this whole community that inspires me every day.
And gives me the best ideas when I'm complaining about tiny triangles.
