Four Winds, again, is a block entirely made of squares and half square triangles. But it turned out to be one of the most difficult Farmer’s Wife blocks I’ve done so far. As you can see, only few seams match, plus many are very wonky instead of very straight.

Apparently, there is a limit to how small patchwork pieces can be, and maybe this limit is reached here.

I am thinking about kicking this block out and redoing it. But then, I am seriously asking myself if this one block should really annoy anyone among the 110 other blocks? I know, this does not sound very ambitious. But maybe if you look at it in a larger context, it will be quite alright.
