Corn and Tomatoes Block

Today was another Farmgirl Friday Sew Along.  I worked about four hours on the Corn and Tomatoes Block.  I was so careful with starching and ironing and cutting and sewing 1/4" seams. 'Sew' darn it, what happened to the points in the middle?!?  ARGH!  I'm trying to decide whether to take it apart and try again or to make a new block.  My husband says to stop  obsessing (of course).   I love my husband, he's just the best cheerleader anyone could ever ask for!

I am happy with the fabrics I chose.  I'm not used to pulling fabrics and putting them together; but I think I did a pretty good job.

I was absolutely delighted to actually accomplish putting this block together.  When I first looked at the picture, I thought how on earth am I going to do this?  There were two blocks on today's sew along schedule; but, I was exhausted after finishing this one, and it was already past dinner time. Maybe tomorrow I'll get to the next one, or maybe I'll be re-doing this one, or maybe I'll get back to work on the quilt on my design board...

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm OCD about my points and corners matching too! But I find that the quilting hides a lot, which is a good thing!

  2. You did a great job at choosing colours. You may find over time that your points get better. Your 1/4 inch may be a bit bigger than a 1/4". It will get better over time as well. I agree with your husband though the block looks good to me.
