Farmer's Wife Week 5


I am having a great time making the Farmer's Wife blocks--it's fun to see so many other bloggers participating in this quilt along as well! I think it's week 5...anyway, I couldn't wait any longer to make my next set of blocks.  First up are my Flurry versions of Block 21--"Contrary Wife" and Block 12--"Broken Sugar Bowl."




And here are my ten Flurry blocks together!  I promise I won't show them all each week--it just occurred to me that the last time I showed the whole set I didn't set them on point as they will be in my quilt.



And Block 21 and Block 12--the Fig Tree versions!




10 down--101 to go!  Have a wonderful day!

You are doing a great job on your blocks and I really like your color choices too.

Carol said...

Love your blocks...I need to lay mine all out and see how they're looking together.

Chris said...

Oh my...every post you have put up on the FWQ just makes me wish even MORE that I was doing this!!! I'm not just saying this but they are just sooooo cute. The fabric lines look so good in every block. I gave my dear friend the FW book for her birthday...hummm....maybe I need to order ME the book too! :)

Glenna @ Hollyhock Quilts said...

I guess this is the first time I realized you are making 100+ blocks!! Good grief, girl! That's a BUNCH!

Stephanie said...

Love both sets. I really love blocks on point.

Maureen said...

I never thought to make the FW with none repo fabrics, I love it!
Can I ask if you are using the templates from the book or figuring out the math?
Thanks for the inspiration!

Thelma said...

OK, that's it, I can't stand it anymore, your blocks are just too cute, I"m going to HAVE to join that sew along!

Are you going with 6 inch blocks, I was thinking of going smaller? I don't need another kings size quilt but want to make all 111 blocks.

Terriaw said...

So nice to see such a great variety of blocks in this quilt-along. I love seeing all the different fabrics everyone is putting together for their projects. Love how those Christmas prints really pop with the white contrast on your first version!

LynCC said...

I really like how both colorways are turning out! Great project for Flurry. I have a fat quarter bundle, and not sure yet what I'm going to do with it.

Dana said...

I am impatiently waiting for the book to arrive so I can start this quilt along. Your blocks are so inspiring and I love that you are doing a Christmas version, too!

Yvette said...

Wow! Beautiful colors and fabrics.

I finished number eleven over the weekend and cut out three more. Hard to get sewing time with three grandchildren in and it. I even got my five year old grandson to help me pick out fabric and cut some of the 2 1/2" triangles on my Go Baby. I am loving how yours are turning out and you are doing double.

Sharon said...

Love both colorways you are using...especially the Fig Tree line. It is fun to see everyones version of the Farmers Wife...we should have a Flicker Quilt Show next year of the completed quilts...there will be such a variety to see.

Thimbleanna said...

Only 101 LOL! they're looking good!

Fran Kingston Dill said...

Love both color combo's. You inspire me to want to go create.

Sherryl said...

I never would have thought of making the FW blocks into a Christmas quilt, but I'm seriously loving what you're doing. The choice of fabric and colors. SO great. I love the other FW quilt fabrics as well ... but that Christmas quilt? Too cool!

Jeanie said...

Aren't these too fun? I am excited to see your Christmas quilt develop. Your blocks are awesome:)

Rhonda said...

Looking good! I'm enjoying seeing your quilt blocks. :)

sewmeow said...

Your blocks are super...great job.

lots to go and you'll do it.

Cheryl said...

So fun to see these blocks all over blogland.....all so beautiful!

Patty said...

Loving your Farmer's Wife blocks (both sets). Loved them so much, I just ordered the book online!!

Sharrieboberry said...

Very cute! Are you layering the fabrics and cutting them out at the same time?

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Isn't it amazing what fabric choice does. I'm so jealous of you making this quilt. Fabulous.

Deborah said...

I bought this book this summer but haven't had a chance to do the blocks yet, just reading it. Wish I had joined in on the beginning of this. They look wonderful!

Toyin O. said...

These are great looking blocks:)

Annette said...

They are so pretty. Especially in the fabrics you chose.

paulette said...

WOW! I love the way you are making the same quilt in two colour ways!! Both are going to be stunning!
