Grandmother’s Choice Block of the Week was quite a challenge this week! Barbara Brackman’s blog treats us each week to a new block and a bit of history recounting the quest for women’s rights. This week the topic is Dress Reform. My goodness we’ve come a long way! And this is one grateful, blue jean clad grandma!!!
The block this week is called Little Boy Breeches:
Now, how many Y seams do you see? LOTS! I hand pieced this puppy and still had to frog stitch (rippit, rippit) a few seams as the “pant legs” were easy to turn the wrong way. But I was reassured that others in the Grandmother’s Choice Flickr Group had the problems. That’s one of the benefits of this group – we share tips, tricks, troubles and lots of tremendous blocks each week. A wonderful online community.
Have a great Thanksgiving week, y’all!
