Farmer’s Wife 1930’s Sew Along – Month Four!

I’m a little late on finishing my fourth month’s blocks!  So here’s a quick review of my eight blocks….

fw Joy

Joy – I love everything about this block….. The mustard, the floral and the ten pin bowling print!

fw mrsbrown

Mrs Brown – This is probably the softest palette amongst my blocks so far, but I adore it!

fw mrsmorgan

Mrs Morgan – Packs a punch!  Love love love the bright flowers amongst the purple and green (should never be seen??  Who made that rule?!?!?!).

fw grandmother

Grandmother – Eeeek, another floral I’ve fallen in love with!?!?

fw lily

Lily – I absolutely LOVED making this block!  Probably because I could finally use one of the huge bug prints!

fw heather

Heather – this was my official bloggers block, you can find my paper piecing tips HERE.

fw lucy

And dear Lucy, with all her handbags!

fw dolly

Dolly.  She deserves a full stop.  Mannnnnnn, all those teeny tiny pieces!  I have no idea how anyone is sane if they made this block using traditional piecing or templates!  She’s a tad bit wonky!


And that, my friends, is the fourth month wrap up!  Once again, a little collage of my finished blocks so far!  LOVING everything about it!

    Oh, your blocks are beautiful! I especially love “Joy”, “Grandmother” and “Lily”. Your fabric choices are spot-on!

    These are so beautiful! I really want to add this to my exceptionally long to-make list 🙂

    Fun as always to see the progress. Boring question about how you make your collage of the blocks to date: do you start from scratch each time? Thanks!

    Your blocks are fabulous in those Cotton+Steel fabrics! I especially love all the fussy cutting you’ve done. I have to admit that I haven’t really understood the Farmer’s Wife craze until seeing all of your blocks together. Your finished quilt is going to be a knockout!

    Fourth month and I’m not going to change my mind. Choosing C+S was brilliant. Blocks are divine!

I actually just finished one with there black and white and charms and layer and fq from all there collections 2 I think and then backed it with the 3. so perfect choice I say. i’m doing mine with my hoard of Denise Schmidt.
