I also constructed another farmer's wife block.
This is one of the designs I wasn't too sure about - Basket.
I don't think I'll ever make a large applique quilt - just this little handle was enough trouble for me.
In fact, I decided that hand stitching it was bothersome enough that I would try sewing the top of the curve on my machine instead. I think it came out better than the lower curve which I did have to sew by hand.
|(Although both look kinda wonky in this picture...)|
Anyway, the finished block is cuter than I imagined it would turn out.
