Farmer’s Wife—Week 7

IMG_6012-1

This week’s blocks for the Farmer’s Wife Quilt-Along were pretty easy, so I decided to slip in an extra one (out of order! gasp!). I know I’ll be missing at least one week in August, maybe even more than one, so it’s nice to be able to work a little ahead right now.

Checkerboard: I’m loving how this one turned out with the darker green background. I had originally planned to use the light green gingham, but realized there wasn’t enough contrast with some of the prints and changed my plan.

Calico Puzzle

Buzzard’s Roost: I’m not a huge fan of this block in general, but I guess it’s okay in these fabrics.

Seventeen done now! I’m hoping to do another extra one next week, which means I can miss a week in August and still be on track.

    Oh, I love that green you used for the background of your checkerboard block!!! Definitely kicks my boring checkerboard's behind 🙂 I love how all of your blocks are looking together – you clearly put lots of thought into your fabric choices because they all mesh so well!

    I love the blocks. Thanks to you, I have bought the book and started on the QAL. I have a lot of catch up to do. Right now, I have 5 blocks done, but all the templates from 1-50 printed, glued onto template plastic and cut out. Tonight, I have the dining room table again, so I will be able to cut some of the fabric out.

    Thank you for being such an inspiration!!!!
