Old and new.......

One of my friends and I bought the Farm Girl Vintage book at the quilt show we went to a couple weeks ago.  We decided we would do 2 blocks each time we get together and we alternate who chooses the blocks.  I chose the first 2 blocks and my blocks are on the left, my friend's on the right.
Later in the afternoon I started designing half blocks for my other quilt.  I started with the one on point and realized I needed to do them straight.  It is a lot harder to design a half block than a whole one.

Your chicken are cute. Funny how things seem easy until you have to start working on them. I have been in that spot before to. Chris

I would have guessed you made the ones on the right!!!! These are a bit of a departure for you... these days. Half and Quarter blocks are some of the hardest... to design... because of the missing parts!!! Feels a little off balance! Me not much in the sewing space again....

Oh, boy, chickens! Hard to go wrong with that choice. How nice to have like minded friends to join you in sewing sometimes.
