Week 8 of the Farmer's Wife QAL - crazy! This was a odd week for me. It has been very busy, so I didn't even get to start working on my blocks until this morning. I decided two things: I needed to do a couple easy-ish blocks, and I needed to make them green, which is the color I am lacking right now. How did I do with those two goals? Terrible!! They were both harder blocks, and neither of them have green. Oh well, green next week for sure.
I did two of my favorite blocks in the entire book. The blue one is #83 - Spider Web. I used blue seeds from Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy and Habitat dots for this one. I love how it turned out, though my center points aren't perfect. They aren't cut off, but one is a little lopsided. I'm okay with that (I think).
I also made Block #80 - Single Wedding Star. This is another favorite. I felt like sewing with some Heather Ross fabric today, so I fussy cut some of her fish fabric and paired that with some orange Kei dots. I am pretty happy with this one, no lost points or corners.
There are some blocks in the book that I don't love, so I plan on making these again at some point. It will be fun to see them in different fabrics, I bet they won't even look like the same block.
Make sure you check out Amanda's beautiful blocks this week! She always picks the cutest fabric.
