Another week...
another round of Farmer's Wife Quilt Blocks!


After 5 weeks of Farming,
I think that I have gotten
a routine for making these blocks.
and this book is getting
a lot of use!
cutting out those tiny pieces is my favorite part!
Insane...because I normally
HATE cutting!
This week
I was able to make another 5 blocks.
Block #19: Checkerboard
I have been seeing
a lot of turquoise, fuchsia, and coral (especially coral) in fashion
and home decor.
I guess that the colors stuck in my head the day that I was
making this block.
Block #21: Contrary Wife
Block #22: Corn & Beans
Block #23: Country Farm
Right now
I am totally into the color navy!
The nautical look is also hot in the world of fashion right now.
I just like the the boldness of navy in general...
kind of like a neutral for me.
So when I made this block
it became my favorite (so far).
In fact...if I had a real life barn, I would paint this very block
(color scheme and all) on the barn.
Block #24 : Country Path
Every week
there is one block in the set
that gives me a fit!
This was #24.
It was the last block that I made this time
so maybe
I was just too tired.
Stats so far:
5 weeks of Farming
23 blocks done...many more to go.
(Last one of my favorite)

  1. I've been lurking and enjoying seeing your solids!!

  2. Love it with the solids! Beautiful.

  3. WOW!! The blocks are getting more gorgeous! I love the bright colors, they ARE so fitting with the styles right now. They just pop! And I'm so glad navy is making a comeback and finding it's way into fabric lines, it's always been a favorite. :)Thanks for linking up!

  4. 24 may have been a royal pain, but it is a stunning block. You can see so much work has gone into it. I agree with you about the navy, it's very striking.

  5. I know I'm a little late to the party, but I've been looking around the internet for Farmer's Wife pics (my mom is a farmer's wife and I want to make her a quilt). Your fabric choices are seriously beautiful! I think the blocks look so much more amazing with your color choices! Love it!!
