Farmer’s wife: Weathervane

I just realised that I forgot to post a picture of two blocks that come before the Waterwheel.

Weathervane

This was the first block I came to realise that I could take a “shortcut” with some block patterns.

In the original pattern, the bannerets in the four corners (light turquoise) consist of four triangles, all similar in size. As you can see, I “combined” two of them, having thus  two small triangles and one triangle which is double the size of the others.

Now I am looking out for such shortcuts because I think less seams will do my small 4,5″ blocks good.
