The Farmer's Wife 1930's Quilt Along - Prudence

Hi and welcome to my stop on the Farmer's Wife 1930's Quilt Along hosted by Kerry of Very Kerry Berry.  
The block I made is called Prudence, and I can't help but think of the Beatles' song : )

Prudence if a complicated block with lots of Y-seams.  
I decided to change the way it is sewn
 to eliminate some of those difficult to sew seams.
I disected the H2, I2, J2 and K2 triangles and put the block together a bit differently from the
It made it much easier to sew by machine.

My quilt is coming together nicely, and I will have enough blocks for a quilt very soon!

See the pics below for a visual reference on how I put the block together.

Happy Sewing


Happy Summer to you!

Happy Summer! I have been so busy with every day life I have neglected this space!
I have been enjoying spending the past two weeks with my boys now that they are on summer vacation.
My sewing time has been sparse, but I am working on an update to my 

I originally designed the pattern for the Sew Out Loud Quilt Along years ago.
It needed some love, so I have redrawn the pattern and included assembly diagrams as well 
as three pages of my favorite paper piecing techniques.

I will keep you posted on the release of the new pattern.
Thanks to everyone that has written emails asking for it : )

Happy Sewing
& Happy Summer!
