It seems like forever since I've had a chance to work on my Farmer's Wife blocks. This past week was week 15, so everyone should have 30 blocks to be caught up with the quilt-along going on around blogland. I have 33 blocks in each of my sets, so I'm okay, but I am hoping to get some extra blocks made soon.
First up is block 20, Churn Dash, a pattern I've always loved...
Next I made block 109, Windows. I had fun with this one, too.
And finally, block 68, Postage Stamp. This block is a lot of fun; it was great to be able to use up some really tiny scraps for this one! I'm really getting close to finishing my Flurry version quilt since I'm just making a lap size--I only have 17 or 18 blocks to go to have enough.
I'm pretty sure my Fig Tree fabric version quilt will take the whole year, though. I have to make 3 blocks a week from here on out to have enough for the king-sized quilt I want to make.
The Churn Dash block is a combination of fabrics from Mill House Inn and Buttercup.
Windows is a combination of Mill House Inn and Strawberry Fields.
Postage Stamp is made entirely from Butterscotch and Rose...I actually had all of these 1 1/2" squares left over from making the log cabin quilt for Joanna for Spring Market (see it here)!
Swoon came back from the quilter this week...I'll share it as soon as I get the scrappy binding sewn on! Hope you have a wonderful weekend...and thanks for stopping by!
Congratulations also to Joanna who won the copy of Just Around the Corner by Kari Carr...I'll be e-mailing you to get your mailing address!
