    Farm Fun

    I started the Eleanor Burns Fun on the Farm BOM challenge https://www.quiltingboard.com/quilti...s-t298654.html because I thought the first block, Joy the Pig was just so adorable. As the BOM progressed, I was less thrilled with the blocks. I borrowed a couple of ideas from the other members and came up with some of my own. I needed a fifth quilt for the show, so put together what I had done so far.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Good Job! I am going my own way too with that BOM. The other blocks just don't have the charm of Joy the pig. I love your tall sunflowers block.

    Don't know what the other blocks look like but I like what your've done. Always fun to add our own creativity.

    ​Cute and I still have some of that corn fabric in my stash waiting for the perfect place to use it!

    Bravo, Quilt Nan, I love what you did in making a couple of the blocks different sizes. I think the blocks you did choose to make are the perfect ones for this wall hanging. My favorite is your "Sue" block.

    Hope you do well with your show.

    This one sure is a winner and inspiration to me!

    I have to say, the corn ears are what catch my eye. They look good enough to cook and eat!

    You just had too much fun with the wall-hanging. Sometimes you don't need to make a whole quilt. Love the clothesline block!

    I have been saving them too but as yet haven't done anything with them. I too love the sunflowers.
