I’m going to follow Elizabeth‘s lead and post my Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along blocks every Tuesday. Like Elizabeth, I’m doing the blocks in order, and like Elizabeth, I appreciate the idea of a weekly schedule for them. Ah, it’s nice not to be the only order freak in blogland. : ) This week’s blocks: Bat Wing and Big Dipper.
I like how the Bat Wing block turned out, but what’s up with the corners of the block being rounded? I know the rounded corners on the templates are supposed to be helpful, but I’m not used to that, so it just seems to be screwing me up. But the block still turned out to be the right size, so I guess I can’t complain.
Big Dipper is okay, although I do wish I had chosen fabrics with a little more contrast. They looked good next to each other, but in the completed block they’re getting lost in each other a bit. Oh well—I suppose it won’t hurt to have some blocks like this once the entire quilt is put together.
Next week’s blocks look a bit more challenging, especially when it comes to choosing the right fabric. Looking forward to it though!
