I made my first block for the Farmer's Wife quilt-along and it is going to be so bright and pretty with the Summer House fabric. I did, however, make a mistake on my first block! The pictures below will show you my error. I am going to keep this block and make another with the same fabrics, BUT I will put them in the right direction next time : ) Also, I haven't made 6.5 inch blocks in a while, and I forgot how exact you need to be with the quarter inch seam so that the block will come out exactly 6.5 inches unfinished. There is no room for error : ( so I have to go slower and pay more attention....LOL.
Anyway, this block is the right size, just the wrong layout! I will begin again tonight.
