    Farmer's Wife - Work in Progress

    I'm about halfway through with my blocks. I'm using Marti Michell's templates. I may need to re-do some as some came out a really small size, but we'll see when I get closer and get them all trimmed and sized. Laying them out helps me to see what colors I need to use

    Looks great, so far. Maybe you can sash the ones that came out too small and bring them up to size. Just a thought. I love your color choices. Please show us your finished project. Thanks for sharing.

    Your colors remind me of my FW mom's aprons. Can't wait to see it finished. Still working on mine. Check out the FWS threads in Blocks of the Month. Here's the completed quilt thread.

    It's looks really nice, the ones that are too small could be worked with adding sashing or a pieced sashing
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    Oh, I'd love to see yours, too! I love Civil War fabrics anyway & paired with FW blocks, I'm sure it's fabulous!

    Me neither but if you think about it, back in the day, that's how they would've done it. These blocks are just beautiful! This is going to be stunning!!!

    That is what I was going to suggest. It's going to be a great quilt.

    Very pretty!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I think they are great. I have got about 66 of them done and I'm doing double so it will take me a while yet. I love yours.

    Looks like a ton of work and a lot of fun. I would wait until you have all your blocks made, then make a decision about framing/sashing them--or using some for your borders.

    Your blocks look beautiful. I love all the colors.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
