Mostly about the Farmer's Wife.
I cut up the 5" squares to put in the zippered bag I made for my give away to celebrate reaching and exceeding 100 followers. If you have not yet entered, please do so by going here. I will be drawing tomorrow night.
I have been working on the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt. This block is Rainbow Flowers, #73. A lovely 1/4 log cabin block. I pieced it as a log cabin block, not as illustrated in the book.
This is Autumn Tints, #2. I was not really considering autumn when I picked the colours.
This is Squash Blossom, #86 (which I posted earlier). It is less striking turned on pointe, I think, but still a great block.
Here is Windmill, #108. I love the simplicity of this block.
These are my 18 blocks so far. I am still loving making these small blocks, each one teaches me something, not always what I expect to learn.
You may want to visit the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt QAL to check everyone's progress. I am off to do some gardening and then back to plum jam making. I hope you enjoy your Sunday!
