This week I made three Farmer’s Wife blocks…one for my Christmas (Flurry) set and two for my Fig Tree version. This is Block 92, Streak of Lightning. I had fun trying to get the zig zag effect with this!
For the first time in over a month I got all the blocks out and had a look…
It’s just so much fun seeing this quilt coming to life!
I don’t know if I’ll be able to stop at just a lap quilt on this one…a little voice keeps saying…wow…wouldn’t this be an awesome larger quilt?
But on the other hand, if I make this a lap quilt, I’ll be finished soon–I have 41 blocks and just need 10 more for the lap-sized quilt. Oh, and having 41 blocks presents a small problem–I thought I only had 40, and I’ve been marking them off on a little chart…looks like I’ll have to go through them all and figure out which one I forgot to record.
Here is my Fig Tree Streak of Lightning.
And this is block 50, Honey’s Choice. I’m definitely going to make a Flurry version of this too, just didn’t have time this week. I used the Marti Michell templates for this one, and it went together like a dream.
I have 45 Fig Tree blocks…
And I do love how they look together. I’m really happy I decided to use scraps from so many lines. This is going to be a favorite, I’m sure.
It really is hard to get a good photo of all of them together…I’m pretty sure I’ll have to take these outside for the next photo shoot!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
