Four More Farmer's Wife blocks done

These blocks are calling my name. So I figured I would start at the beginning and make Attic Window, and while I was at it, another nine-patch. The next nine-patch was Box, so that was that decision. I used Marti Michell templates D25, B9, B12 and B13 for Attic Window. I used B13 to trim D25 to the right shape.

Box used B12 and B13.

Then I decide to make something a bit different, and happened on Periwinkle and Night & Day. I used templates I printed from EQ6, which makes it easy to mark the straight of grain, very handy for piece #61, which looks remarkably like an isoceles triangle, but it isn't. I cut out some extra bits because I kept getting mixed up on my light and dark, putting them up on a smallish design wall helps to keep things straight.
