I picked out fabrics for 10 Farmer's Wife blocks the other day, so there has been lots of farming going on this week.
See how super organized I am?? I shove all of the necessary fabrics into the book, and I keep the templates in a ziplock bag. Um, yeah. :)
I had a love/hate relationship with the five blocks that I made so far this week. I love how they all turned out in the end, but I didn't enjoy making them all. Note to self: don't make so many difficult blocks at once. Geez.
106 - Wild Rose & Square. This is one of my two favorites from the batch. I really really like this block, and these are some of my favorite fabrics.
102 - Whirlpool
107 - Windblown Square. These two were fun, same block with fabric variations.
105 - Wild Goose Chase. I love those little geese and the fabrics. But let me tell you, this block was not my friend. I don't know what my deal was, but this one drove me nuts. I used my seam ripper way too many times, and I seriously began to doubt my ability to make a FW quilt during the creation of this block. Like I said, I don't know what was up, but this block was no fun to make. I do like the finished product though, thank goodness. (Sorry for the complaining, just keeping it real!)
99 - W.C.T.U. Love this one, had fun making it too. This is my other favorite of the batch. This was a great one to end on, and I was much happier after this one was done. Phew.
I have 5 more blocks ready to sew, and I get to work on them tonight. I am sewing with some friends this evening, and I am really looking forward to it! The blocks I am doing next are much easier, so it should be fun.
