Blocks #1 and #8 - Farmers Wife Sampler
Block #1 Attic Window - I kind of messed this one up a little. I decided to drink while trying to use freezer paper templates for the first time. Mistake! I ironed the freezer paper to the right side and traced everything on the right side instead of the wrong side. You can see the tracing marks and they were hard to sew together. At least I learned why you do it the other way.
Hint/tip of the Day: Buy 18" freezer paper and cut it to 8 1/2" by 11" and print the templates on your printer. Way faster and more accurate than tracing everything from printouts.
Block #8 Bouquet - I used templates and hand pieced this block.
