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…
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!
