It was sort of a "Farmer's Wife" Saturday. And I got a little carried away. I made the blocks for weeks 9 and 10. Maybe it's a good thing I'm ahead. There are quite a few blocks I'm going to have to use templates for, and that will slow me down a bit in the coming weeks. First up is block 73, Rainbow Flowers.
Next I made block 74, Ribbons. I really love this block!
A super easy block--block 84, Spool.
And finally, block 5, Bat Wing. I used the templates for the top and bottom units and simply measured and cut the center section pieces.
My goal this week for my Flurry version blocks was not to use any plain white fabric. I've used quite a bit of white already and wanted to incorporate some of the lighter prints as backgrounds.
My goal for the Fig Tree blocks was just to use a variety of lights, mediums and darks--and to keep the blocks fun! (Block 73, Rainbow Flowers).
Block 74, Ribbons, again...one of my favorites!
Block 84, Spool.
And finally Block 5, Bat Wing.
I just love the combination of all the Fig Tree lines. Light and dark fabrics seem to work together flawlessly. A block with the lighter colors of Strawberry Fields can sit right next to a block made with the darker tones of Breakfast at Tiffany's or Mill House Inn and look wonderful.
I guess I'll wait a couple of weeks before I post any more Farmer's Wife blocks...but that doesn't mean I won't be making them! Thanks so much for stopping by!
