While my sewing machine was being serviced, I spent my time cutting fabric for Farmer's Wife sampler blocks. When I first started farming, I shied away from machine piecing the blocks, because I was afraid that my scant 1/4" seam wasn't accurate enough. Instead, I paper or hand pieced them. I still struggle with getting a perfect scant seam, but I no longer fear machine piecing these little blocks. In fact, having all the fabrics cut ahead of time makes machine piecing them a breeze! Here's what I accomplished today.
P.S. I definitely need to buy some Washi tape for taping up blocks for photos. The painter's tape is just horrible!
