I finally started my Farmer’s Wife quilt. I finally got all of the templates printed, cut out and organized into groups of 15 or so. And in little baggies. I got five blocks done in one day! I cut out most of another (number seven, because I’m washing the fabrics for number 6)
My piecing, as you’ll see, is looking a little off in spots. Cutting out the templates is way different than what I’m used to. And I wish I had a huge stash of the latest modern fabrics to choose from. Or even one whole line. That’d be awesome. Maybe one day. But for now, I’m using what I have. Here are my first five blocks.
This is my only piece of Lizzy House (poor me) and I’ve been hoarding it for a few months. I’m sure these hedgehogs will pop up again soon.
My Basket of Fish (minus the handle.)
I may have to re do this. :/
And last, but not least, the happy swastika.
I’m very much enjoying the Farmer’s Wife so far. I’ve decided to not say anything about it in my traditional guild until it’s done. Then I can whip it out and dazzle them all. Bwhahaha.
Let me know what you think! And I’d appreciate any tips or tricks you have!
