SBS Blocks

C1 – Contrary Husband

A2 – Shoo-Fly

Yesterday I started off with Contrary Husband. I made a bunch of these for the Blue & Brown SBS swap last summer. Most of the blocks I tested using 30’s reproduction, but I guess I figured this block was easy enough and didn’t. Once I had an easy block under my belt last night, I moved on to this week’s block with that pesky applique. Once that was done, I decided I need another easy block and picked Shoo-Fly.

I sat down at my machine and started to sew and had a moment of hesitation. “Boy are those pieces big, did I cut them right?” I had 2 1/2″ and 3″ squares in my hand — Huge compared to the pieces from the previous two blocks and my stack of 2″ leader/ender squares.
