Farmers Wife 32 and 55

Just a couple of Farmer's Wife blocks to share ...

FW 32 - Farmer's Daughter

FW 55 - Linoleum

FW 55 - Linoleum is this week's Block of the Week in the Yahoo user group I'm following for this quilt.  I thought that "linoleum" was begging for the wild prints swirls and whirls!

Project 48 Catching Up


Wonky flying geese.  The poor fella bringing up the rear is inside out - I like unique so it stays as is.
Block 11 - Crystal McGann
More flying geese - what a cool variation!
Block 12 - Marci Debetaz
 On to crosses - so modern!
Block 13 - Linden Vine
 Simply beautiful.
Block 14 - Amy Rae
Wonky scrappy crosses!  Each of those wee sub-blocks in is 3 1/2", making 63 pieces in this 9 1/2" block.
Block 15 - Crystal McGann

Splendid Sampler Catching Up

Block 9 - Local Quilt Shop - a delightful little house block.  Found a perfect little selvedge to stand in as the shop name.  Wanted to keep the whole bit of the selvedge so settled on a strip of flowers climbing the wall rather than windows.
Block 9 - Local Quilt Shop
Block 10 - Iowa - wanted the centre block to not be pieced, so took a fairly straight forward block and made it more complicated.  Love it!

Block 10 - Iowa
Block 12 - Checkerboard - love these wee little blocks.  Will have to do one bargello style too!
Block 12 - Checkerboard
Block 15 - glorious paper piecing.  These are 6 1/2 inch blocks, right?  So these wee little strips of teal are really tiny!  Loving "Grunge" more and more.
Block 15 - Family Affair
Block 18 - Lina's Gift.  Yes, I do love teal!  Isn't this an awesome background??!

Farmer's Wife 47

FW 47 Homemaker

This wee beauty (6 1/2") is the only FW block I've been able to get to in a bit. This was the block of the week for the online group helping motivate and share. Paper piecing, and then set-in y-seams. Yeesh!
