I had fun putting together 3 more Farmer's Wife blocks this weekend! I had drafted 6 blocks last week--for me, doing the math ahead of time ensures I'll make at least a few. I hope to make 3 more this week!
First up is block 60, Noon & Light. This was a fun block to make. I used a different construction method than is used in the photo from the book...it just seemed easier to make this block using half square and quarter-square constructions. I used fabrics from the Fig Tree Whimsy collection for this one.
Next I made block102, Whirlpool using pieces from Butterscotch & Rose--more half-square triangles!
And finally I made block 64, Peace & Plenty, using California Girl scraps--as you can see I mad a lot of small half-square triangles this weekend.
I'm looking forward to sewing the other 3 blocks I have drafted! I really want to get a photo of all my blocks together this week too...it's been a while since I got them all in one picture!
Thanks for stopping by!
