Farmer's Wife Friday

I had a chance to work on some Farmer's Wife blocks this week...had a lot of fun making these! First up is block #87, Star Gardener.  I eliminated some of the half-square triangles as shown in the book and substituted flying-geese blocks.

This is certainly a new favorite--block #27, Darting Birds. It took just a minute for me to pick out the cute birds in this block!

And here is block #53, Jackknife--an especially fun block in these Christmas prints!

 Here are the this weeks Christmas version blocks together; I've decided to make this quilt a twin, so on I go...unless I change my mind before next week. I have 50 blocks and could make the lap-sized quilt now.  But I'm having so much fun sewing with the bright colors that I think I'm going to keep going on this one!

And here are my Fig Tree versions...Star Gardener again.

Those adorable darting birds...

And Jackknife.

I'm having so much fun with these quilts...and I love seeing all the different versions being made, too!

I've got two nice-sized stacks of blocks.  I'm trying not to think about the fact that if they were all in one fabric way I'd have enough for a queen-sized quilt by now.  Have a wonderful weekend...and thanks so much for stopping by!
