FWSQ blocks for November

Our Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt saga continued this November and our block theme was half-square triangles. Each block contained at least four half-square triangles. We made the Night & Day block in class by paper piecing. If you plan on finishing the Night & Day block your own, be sure to square up your blocks to 3 1/2" after you sew two of the paper pieced units together. Also, don't forget to change the seam on four of the pieces before you sew them together so you can lock the seams. If you don't get the block done on your own we can finish in the next session.

Next month's topic - quarter-square triangles!  We'll be working on several blocks that feature quarter-square triangles or hour glass units.
