Nellie Block 77 Farmers Wife 1930s

 

Hello all Farmer's Wife 1930s lovers I thought I'd share my block for last week #77 Nellie. You can find information about the blocks released last week over at Angie's Nellie is Block 77 of Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt - GnomeAngel

I used the foundation paper piecing technique to complete this block. Looking at the book I saw the block one way and when I started putting it together realized I was really happy I used a non-directional fabric in the sections I did not "fussy cut". I had to turn a few pieces upside down so it didn't come out different than the book.

Yes, I said I turned them upside down.

The "Nellie" block just begged to have a little fussy cutting. It will added to the final quilt my love of the beach.
