Design Wall Monday: All the little blocks
I carefully pinned all my Farmer's Wife blocks onto the barn wall because it has been awhile since I had them all up and playing together. There was no wind to speak of until I was about halfway through pinning the little suckers onto the wall. Then the breeze started and I had to go back and pin and pin again to get them to cooperate for a picture. I think I counted 32 blocks. We are in week 14 this week and I have made a few extra blocks just in case I get super busy. I also have another little stack of "I am not happy with you" blocks that did not get on the wall.
I am happy with the overall scrappiness of the blocks. I am using scraps and bits and pieces. I have learned that I must stick to fabric choices with lots of contrast because the blocks are so small. There are a few blocks that do not have enough contrast to make me totally content.
And some more red roses, blooming 8 feet off the ground and looking so lovely.
Linking up with Judy's Design Wall Monday today!
