Block 38 - Contrary WifeI sure wish I knew the history on this block! And I'm sure where there is a contrary wife, there is a contrary husband somewhere, too!
|I have a small stash of various 5" charms I've collected on various internet swaps. Most are cut into 2 1/2" squares, but I had some 5" ones, too. I chose 4 of those.|
- From your charms (or scraps) pick out the fabric you want to use for the 4 corners and the center square. I used 2 different fabrics for this, or you can use just one. From those, cut 5 - 2 1/2" squares.
- See below to cut the 4 half-square triangles
|Lay out the units like a 9-patch block, making sure all the HSTs are facing the right direction. Sew together in rows and sew the rows together to finish your 6 1/2" block.|
