Three blocks this week! Woohoo! We are now up to 15 of the 99 blocks done. Still a long ways to go, but making great progress. This weeks blocks were so much fun. And I didn’t have to un-pick anything so that made this week all the better.
Block 13 : #1 Addie
This block I took my time on. Fussy cut the center and all the accent point tips. Probably took longer than it needed to take, but I love how it turned out.
Block 114 : #57 Margaret
This block had some special meaning to me. My mother IS the ‘Farmer’s Wife.’ And to top it off her name is Margaret. She is the most wonderful woman, mother, wife, friend ever! I happened to be over there the day that the block was released. We were supposed to be helping rack leaves at a Great Aunt & Uncle’s house, but being the farmer’s wife/mother & me the daughter, we were sent on an errand to help move grain trucks on our family farm. They were at the height of harvest, so off we went to help out. So as thank you for all that she does, I had her request the colors for this block. Her choice: Red & Black. I think I took care of that quite well. Throwing in the tractors, red gingham & black with silver dots (an ode to her beautiful silver hair…she’s gonna hate me for that one) all makes this my mother’s block.
Block 15 – #62 Milly
Milly is here. I liked this block. Although, I think my color combination may have looked better in my head. All in all, I like how it came out. I am really a fan of the simplicity of the triangles. These last two blocks came together so quickly and neatly.
On to week 7! I am looking forward to the new challenges and seeing all the other blocks & fabric combinations from everyone else. Month two of this Farmer’s Wife 1930’s Quilt along is starting off wonderfully!!!
Here are my first months worth of blocks:
Including this week’s trio! This quilt is going to be totally random in colors, and I am loving how it is looking thus far.
