Farmer's Wife 1930s Quiltalong, week 2

This week we sewed the Betty and Caroline blocks.  Both of these blocks are made up of triangles.  I foundation paper pieced both of these, and I am happy with the results.  I rough cut triangles,  mostly to keep from having any of my pieces go crazy off grain.

This is Caroline on the left and Betty on the right.  I carried the red in Betty over from the Aunt block from last week.  Then I carried the low volume yellow print from Betty over into Caroline.  I like the solids, I might have to order more of them if I find myself trying to put a solid in every block!

The quilt blocks look nice.

But the big question is...did you get another kitty???
He/she's a beauty!

Hey Pat! This is my grandcat, Stella. She belongs to my eldest son, so she came to live with us when he moved back home last year. She is a sweetie, and very vocal. She chirps at us all the time.

Hi Maggie! I came over from WIP Wed. Your blocks look great! I have a black and white cat, too - don't you love the way they help with the sewing?

Maggie said...

I have an orange tabby too. The black and white likes to lay on fabric, the orange loves to tear the corners off of paper. They are oh so helpful!

I haven't started the FW, but in my Pre-planning, I was thinking solids would be a necessity. Great helper
