Contrary Wife block

 I won a charm pack from Kathy Tracy's giveaway recently.  Of course I tried my luck especially since these are fabrics by Andover's Jo Morton!  What is there not to love.


The contrary wife block is Kathy's April challenge block on SQT.   When I looked at Kathy's cutting instructions, I found the charm pack to be perfect for this block.  So I've completed 4 blocks and will think about how I want to set them.  The middle piece is a woven from my scrap stash.  I pondered on adding cheddar but decided against it since I am shooting for a completely scrappy blue quilt.

 It's Jess W's birthday and I stitched a prim cat and sewed it into a pin cushion and a Needle Case from Kathy's book Civil War Sewing Circle.  The prim cat is a free design by Primitive Blessings.
Also a pair of prim scissors and a piece of printed linen.
