Farmer's Wife Blitz... the blocks are done!!!

I blitzed the last blocks yesterday.  Oh, my goodness!  I have to say, "PHEW!"  I don't even know what these ones are at this point.  I noticed that one of the blocks is actually a 6" granny square block but in the book, they use an assortment of colours not the patterned granny square.  I made the bottom one with the chickens and chicken wire scrap because I felt that the Farmer's Wife quilt needed to have a chicken.  The block is actually "Economy."  There are several blocks in the book which I did not make because I didn't really like them so I made duplicates in different fabrics of a few of them.  So I cheated.  He he he!  So what?

This morning I organized the blocks on the downstairs living room floor.  I was being a bit of a nutter and the on-point layout was too much for my early morning brain.  Husband was on the stationary bike and provided loud directions from his lofty position on the bike.  I couldn't have done it without him!  Stay tuned for the whole mess of blocks on the design floor tomorrow!

Now I just have to decide on the sashing and setting triangles.  ERG!  Oh!  It is spring break for me.  I'm off all week. Yippee!  We woke up to a winter wonderland instead of spring.

Yep, this morning.  March 18, 2012


  1. Phew alright! Awesome work and so beautiful. Wow that snow is pretty :-)

  2. Yay! You and I are on the same track... I just finished the last blocks yesterday too! Looking forward to seeing your layout pictures.

  3. How exciting! I imagine you will be beside yourself till you get them all sewn together-have fun. I am sure hubby will be available to give advice again!
