It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve caught up on my Farmer’s Wife project, but I decided I would just update you monthly from here on out. This is going to one epic quilting journey, one which I am whole-heartedly throwing myself in to – but I am acutely aware that with thousands of participants all over the world, some of you may be going through #farmerswifeoverload. So, with that said – here’s my first month block run-down! If you didn’t see my first five blocks, you will find them HERE.
And now, here’s the rest of the month’s blocks!
Belle – which you will find my tutorial for HERE.
Coral – the first block I mucked around with the traditional fabric layout. I made this before I actually realised there WAS a traditional fabric layout! Ha! But I love it so much I’m keeping it in the club!
Old Maid – I don’t use red fabric in quilts EVER. So this was a big step for me. I absolutely adore it – especially with the navy blues.
Katherine – Oh mannnn. Kitty cats have never looked so cute to me! This took some fussy cutting skill I tell you!
Susannah – Could be my favourite block so far. In fact, yes, it is! Bunnies. And moons. Sigh.
Granny – Another I made before the “traditional fabric placement memo” struck me! And another I won’t be re-making 😉
All of the blocks above have been paper pieced. It is definitely my method of choice so far, and I will probably do the same with the majority of the 99 blocks in the quilt. Don’t get me wrong – I’ll try some new techniques along the way – but I figure why change something that’s working?
And just for fun – here’s my first month’s block all together!
I’m so utterly pleased with my fabric choice right now. Of the thousands of fabric choices on the world wide sew along – I love mine the best! Lucky huh? 😉
