This weeks Fig Tree version Farmer’s Wife blocks were made from market sewing scraps. In fact, all of the half-square triangles were cut-offs from bigger blocks, and even the flying geese were made from scraps that were pretty small!
This is the block I shared the other day–Block 26, Cut Glass Dish.
Here is Block 89, Steps to the Altar.
And here is one of my favorites, Block 105, Wild Goose Chase!
Wild Goose Chase is the only block I finished this week in my Flurry version, and it turned out to be a favorite! Did you know the author of The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt, Laurie Aaron Hird also wrote another book, The Farmer’s Wife Pony Club Sampler Quilt? For a chance to win this book from one of my sponsors, Rachel from Dewberry Lane,

Thanks for stopping by!
Those little blocks are wonderful 🙂 Feels good to use up those scraps, does't it? I have to fight with myself not to save every teeny tiny bit.
Once again you've made beautiful blocks. I can't wait to see your finished quilt! 🙂
They're so pretty and precise, Sherri! I don't know how you get it all done, woman, seriously? You're amazing.
What a wonderful opportunity. I love the first book. Those little blocks are a great way for me to practice my piecing skills and learn more about quilting as I go. Love them!
The cut glass dish is really pretty. Love the fabric choices you made. Julierose

I am loving the fabrics for your quilts.
I love your blocks! I'm doing mine in Fig Tree too!
Your blocks are SO gorgeous. I love seeing how they are turning out, but it makes me a little crazy too. I'm trying very hard to make myself wait until January before I start (I'm working on a Block of the Week and a Block of the month that both end in December). Oh it's so hard to wait!
Your blocks are beautiful and really nice color combinations, wish I could sew with such precision;)

Congratulations on using up some of your scraps in such a beautiful way!! The blocks turned out lovely!! Would love to see more. email@example.com
This is a great way to use scraps. I always seem to have lots of scraps that I don't want to throw away. These blocks are lovely.
Oh are these gorgeous! I like the flying geese one too. It looks great in either fabric line. Thanks for the pretty pictures.
Actually there are a couple of notions I like. The Quilters Dream batting and the Omnigrip 5×5 ruler. I'm a newbee at quilting and I get very excited around notions, haha!

Awesome blocks! Love the fabrics and your piecing is perfect!
Oh Sherri I am loving these new blocks!
I am so far behind in my FWQ blocks. I have had so many big projects I needed to get finished for birthdays etc. You make me want to dive in again.
