Farmer's Wife 1930's Start!

 First 2 Farmers Wife 1930's blocks are done, yay!!  I was very grateful for the tips provided by Kerry on her blog qal here.
 I definitely had an easier time with Addie and used traditional piecing to put this one together...Many of my blocks will be done in pinks as that is the color I seem to have the most of in 30's fabric - bubblegum pink...this was a bit of a surprise to me!!

Aimee is not perfect...but I am happy with her :)  I used paper piecing for this one.

Aimee's letter spoke of a blue jar to collect change in order to buy classic books...what a nice idea!!

I am posting these on IG under the tags #addieblock #aimeeblock

How nice not to be behind yet, lol!!

Great start with two very pretty blocks! As a kid I used collect change in a jar to buy books, I didn't have a blue jar though :)

Very nice! I haven't started sewing but have been organizing my fabrics. In doing so, I found a kit I bought in 2003 that was partially pieced. It has six inch Churn Dash blocks. I have been sidetracked with this quilt but hope to start the new quilt soon!
