    Hope it is ok if I start this thread. I have my blocks finished. Had a few issues with the bowtie which I thought would have been an easy block to do.
    Am thoroughtly enjoying this process, love playing with fabric

    Now to start on the next 2, I have actually ripped out number 11 twice so time for a deep breath and start again :)

    Great blocks.
    Honchey, I really like the blue flowered fabric. It really caught my eye.

    Those are really pretty blocks. You ladies are up and at 'em early today!! I better get moving-will post pics later. Your blocks are such an inspiration to keep going on this project when I run into a troublesome block.

    I want to use it again and pair it up with a pale lavender print. there's a little bit of that in the background. I'm thinking that when the wives were piecing they were using fabric from clothing that had been washed alot so I like to mix some muted shades in the mix from my scraps.

    I still say I haven't seen a single repeat in all the blocks. It's amazing! :) :)

    I think it will be lovely. I wonder how many of us were thinking the same thing about the fabrics. Anyway, I wasn't going to repeat any fabrics but some I just really like and so...

    Will post mine later today. Sorry, guess this should have been on Discussion page. :oops:

    Is it too late to start with this group. I have the Farmers Wife book, but would like to continue to receive the rotary cutting directions which are not all that easy for me to find. I have the ones up to blocks 9 & 10. I don't have time right now to sew them, too much else in my life, but would like to in the near future. Thanks in advance for listening and telling me if I can still receive the rotary directions and where to find them.

    Stormatsea45 I started late, and I am so happy I did. I use templates, but every week the rotary cutting is poasted on the quilters forum then go to block of the month/week. :)

    First, I want to say all of you are doing an awesome job with these little buggers. I've been working along, although in a different manner, and decided it's time for the great reveal.

    I don't have the patience to stretch this out to a year or more so I'm trying to do similar blocks at the same time. Additionally, I've drawn out a lot of foundations, and am working on some of the more difficult ones at the same time.

    I also plan to substitute liberally because I just don't like some of the blocks. So, I'll replace the baskets with something else farm related, for example. Another one I don't plan to use is Rosebud because it always reminds me of four pig's feet (you'll never look at it the same again!)

    The fabrics are Moda Fresh Cotton. I really don't like 30's fabrics so I wanted to stretch into something similar but not quite. These are not fabrics that I would normally be attracted to either, but I think they work with the theme.

    The other thing I'm doing is attaching a sashing piece to each as I go. It's helpful in arranging them.

    Hello everyone, I'm here. Sorry I've not been online I've been extremely busy at work. I totally forgot today was Wed. so didn't remember to start the new page before I left this morning so I'm glad someone did.
    Wow you all have been very busy, your blocks look great indeed.

    Dagny you are really coming along there.
    I will try to connect as often as possible, I probably won't even start on this weeks blocks til after I come back from the festival the 13th, in fact it will probably be that following weekend. Yup definately slacking.
