working away... a Farmer's Wife

 Block #1  Attic Windows

Block #5 Bat Wing

Block #4 Basket Weave  (and sorry this block was not lying flat when I took the picture!)

Block #2 Autumn Tints  (this one is not flat either.. argh!)

Here is what I have found out.  When I printed the templates that I found when I looked at the quilt along  tips thread, I had to set the printer so that there was no scaling to fit the page.  Once I printed the templates in this format and this size, the blocks came out a perfect 6.5" square.  This makes me very happy.  I have been playing around with these blocks and started assembling the hexie pillow top that I have on my to do list.  Not a hugely productive quilting day because I am feeling quite yucky with a miserable summer cold!!  Blah!  Who needs a cold when we finally get some nice weather!

Happy weekend and don't forget to enter my giveaway!!!!  


  1. cute fabric choices for your blocks. hope you feel better soon

  2. I have ordered the book and hopefully will have time to work on these blocks! From the many pictures I see posted, the blocks look relatively simple. I, too, love your fabric choices - so fresh looking.
