Since I started feeling not-so-hot on Saturday, I did not even think about what I was going to do with this applique block. Those of you who followed along with the Civil War BOW with me know how I feel about applique blocks. So.... do I just omit this block... or sub another?
In honor of the males (most likely married) who were opposed to women's suffrage, I decided to sub Contrary Husband for Alice's Flag.
Pretty amazing, isn't it?
There are a number of ways to make Contrary Husband and most use the HST method. Me.... for the first time, I went to BlockBase and looked up the block so I could get the measurements without having to do a lot of figuring. I found another way to make this block and decided it would be a good one to practice some Y-seams! Yea, me!
I make an error in cutting the blue fabric for the 1930s fabric block... but it was fixable.
The second block went together faster and I have to say I do like this block without the HSTs...
And for all the women who worked for the right for women to vote: Thank you!
