Week 10 of the Farmer's Wife quilt-along is here, and I now have 21 blocks. I am still doing templates for the most part. I really like using them. I know that is is not everyone's cup of tea, but it definitely is mine. When I first began quilting 10 or so years ago, that is how I learned. And perhaps the elementary school teacher side of me enjoys the all of the tracing and cutting.
The orange block is #72 - Railroad. This one was nice and easy, lots of squares and a couple HST's. I used up some orange Modern Meadow scraps (Joel Dewberry) and Kei dots. The second block is #40 - Friendship Block. I used 1001 Peeps and Habitat for this one. Aren't those two fabrics together the best??
Now here is the whole family, my first 21 blocks. They sure make me happy. I think I need to work on some yellow blocks next week.
I'll be back tomorrow, I have a quilt tutorial to share with you!
