Yes, it's been a little while since I did some visiting with my Farmer's Wife fabrics and blocks. It sure felt good to get back to the farm! I've been making note of my "works in progress" this weekend (luckily, I don't have as many as I'd feared), and I realized that I really do like having a few quilts that take a little time. I really enjoy the process with these "long-term" quilts!
This is block 43, "Garden Path." I didn't use the templates, choosing instead to make 28 half-square triangles to go along with the 8 squares. I assembled this into four 9-patch units to make construction a little easier.
And this is block 51, "Hovering Birds." It was definitely fast and easy compared to "Garden Path!"
I was only going to make two blocks this week then realized that block 52, "Hovering Hawks" was just so similar to block 51. I had to make it!
And here are the Fig Tree fabric versions of the three blocks.
Again block 43--I really love this block--time-consuming but so worth it!
And block 52.
I mapped out a few more blocks the other night, so hopefully I can get back in the habit of working on these weekly. I've decided to keep going with my Christmas version until I have enough blocks for a full-size quilt (about 30 more to go for that). I'm still planning on a king-sized quilt with the Fig Tree fabric blocks.
Thanks again for stopping by and for leaving so many wonderful comments! Have a terrific day!
