Farmers Wife Night

Tonight is Farmers Wife night with the girls. Where do the weeks go? I needed some motivation to do some more blocks so I photographed each one that I have done so far.

Block #1. I know this is over the top with the prints but the one thing I do know is you won't find another one like it!

Block #2. I had not decided my sashing would be black when I did this block.

Block #6. I have to do #4 and #5 over. I forgot when you paper piece that you have to cut your strips much wider than I did. Oops!

Block #9. I decided to do mine a little different. Who would guess?

Block #9. The blue fabric is one that I LOVE, is old and I never wanted to use it up but it was perfect for this block. We all have those kind that we just hate to cut up.

Block #11. This is another I did before I decided on black sashing.

Block #19

Block #20

Block #21

Block #29

Block # 64

A total of 14 with the other 3 I posted some time back. For those of you who aren't familiar with Farmers Wife all these blocks are 6 1/2". Over the weekend a friend in another Farmers Wife group showed us her finished top! She added a few extra from the Insane quilt (we had started but discontinued) to enlarge her quilt. At this point I can't even imagine Farmers Wife finished.

Have a happy...

Those blocks are stunning! I am in awe of your ability to combine chaos and come out with blocks that look marvelous!
