Farmer's Wife Check in: Week 29 and 30

#80 Single Wedding Star

Two weeks worth of Farmer's Wife blocks today.  I forgot to post last week in all the Christmas hoopla.  So here are a couple on the barn wall. Quite love the Single Wedding Star block.  It was fun and non-stressful to make.  I also really like the fabrics so it was a win win!  Then I tackled Morning below with some Fig Tree scraps.  Another stress free block.
#57 Morning

#53 Jack knife
 Jack knife came together easily.  I see a bit of wonk but I think it is just the way I have placed it on the white sheet.  Night and Day below was a giant pain in the you know where.  Oh my goodness.  It almost went in the garbage can.  Then I decided to trim each quarter of the block before putting the whole thing together.  At least now the block is flat as opposed to mountain peaked.  The contrast is awesome though and the block is just a hair smaller than the others and I think it will all work in the end.  I don't know what it is with some of the blocks.  Some of them are majorly frustrating!!!!!!!!!!

Other than farming these wee blocks, I did start my wonky scrappy little star quilt.  I love it!  Oh my word, it is making me happy!

Christmas came down today.  Everything is put away but the Christmas pillows and quilt.  They get to stay out for a little bit more.  Happy Wednesday one and all!
