I've been farming again, and it has been so enjoyable. I forgot how much fun these blocks are to make. They are so addicing! Once you make a couple, it is hard to stop. I made 7 last week.
58 - Mother's Dream - my favorite from this batch. I think the aqua herringbone and gray heath are pretty much the perfect fabrics.
57 - Morning
63 - Ozark Maple Leaf. Love these two fabrics together. You know that woodgrain is one of my all time favorites, and that yellow from DS Quilts is so pretty. I used this for the backing of my Swoon quilt (which has been quilted and is now ready to be bound... eeee!)
103 - Whirlwind. This is definitely my least favorite of the batch.
111 - Monkey Wrench. I sure love this block (I think it is the same as churn dash?) I'd like to make a whole quilt from this block someday.
109 - Windows.
108 - Windmill. I really like this one, but the yellow (which is so pretty and from Pat Bravo) might be a little much. I am thinking that if I use it in a couple other blocks that it will look okay. But I may just redo the block, not sure yet!
Now I am up to 43 blocks. I am still a few behind, hopefully I'll be caught up in the next few weeks. Once I get to the halfway point, which is 56 blocks, I'll lay them all out again and get a few pictures. I think that will help me decide what colors/prints/etc I'm lacking, and maybe then I can finally decide on sashing and layout. I am having the hardest time deciding!!
Speaking of layouts, did you see this and this?? Seriously, check them out. They are crazy beautiful and inspiring. Be sure to check out Amanda's latest blocks. She has been farming like crazy, and they are as beautiful as always.
Hope you are having a good weekend!
