Here's a little recap of the blocks we've made so far.
These were the first 2 blocks we made. These blocks were not difficult. Becky is on the left and Bonnie is on the right. Each block is accompanied by a letter written by an actual farmer's wife of that time. They are so sad and yet uplifting at the same time. The Depression was such a difficult time to live through. These women talk about their hardships but try to accentuate the positives in their lives as well.
I enjoyed making Betty, on the left. However, Belle was a different story. Belle had Y seams which I haven't done in years. Glad to say, it worked out fine!
Coral, left, looks like a star with a peep hole! Old Maid, right, looks pretty new to me!
I just finished these last 2 blocks. Katherine, left, and Susannah went together quickly. I had to take my time making them. So easy to mix up pieces!!
That's it, so far! There are a total of 99 blocks in the book. I don't plan on making a quilt large enough to use up all the blocks. The lap size only uses 32 blocks. I'm still deciding what size to make!
