I think I set a personal record this week with my Farmer's Wife blocks. I finished two blocks in 1 hour and 20 minutes and didn't use a seam ripper once! Even better I'm really pleased with how both blocks turned out.

I decided to make the corner blocks for Jackknife using the same technique I used for my Tennessee Road blocks in Coffee Lover's Delight. After making 2.5" HSTs I cut 1.5" squares of white and black. I sewed diagonally across the squares and trimmed the excess. The waste was very minimal and by using squares instead of triangles I got the placement perfect every time.
