Farmer's Wife Check In Week 26 and the dreaded "y" seam

Block # 37  Flower Pot

Block # 42 Fruit Basket

Here they are for this week!  I was dreading the flower pot block because it does have the "dreaded" y seams. Once I wrapped my brain around how to handle such little tiny pieces with a y seam, it really was just fine. I have sewn my fair share of doll clothes and you often have to do similar seams with those.

And Fruit basket was fiddly with all the little triangles but it was just fine!  I am noticing how tall my wee pile of blocks is getting!  Seriously impressive.

On another topic, for those Canadians out there, Fabricland is getting much nicer quality fabric. I noticed lately, some really special stuff including some of the Annie's Seed Catalogue fabric from Lake House Dry Goods. Oh my goodness! Who knew?

Please don't forget to enter my giveaway.  You have until Thursday evening and as I said yesterday, I did find some more samples from this Christmas line from Basic Grey to throw in so it is an even better prize!!!
