Last week I mentioned that I was struggling with the Contrary Husband block in the Votes For Women project. First I cut all the diamond angles backwards. Ugh.
I recut all the diamonds and tried to sew them together.
After bragging about "mastering" the set-in seams for block # 29, I got a quick reality check - this block was not even close to being workable!
A big thanks to Leslie for sharing a link to modified piecing directions. Why didn't I think of that?!? If you didn't think of it either and want to try block #33, click here to go to American Homestead's directions.
Kuddos to Janet who recognized (in her comment on my Votes for Women post last week) that I had purchased a charm pack of Barbara Brackman's Metropolitan Fair .
I used one of the charm squares for the center of this block. Yum! I think I also might need to get more of the paisleys...double yum!
So, here is my successful version (finally!) of block #33.
