Farmer's Wife 1930's - Sara (90) & Sarah (91)

In the home stretch!  Some fabric colors are running low - including this red!

Sara (90) - Fun to do a block with just squares!

Sarah (91) - The star block is one of my favorite.

Each time I complete a group of 9, I do a group shot.  So here we go through block 90.   There are 99 blocks in total so I'm one group shot away from being done!

Here are blocks 82 through 90 - Pharlemia (82), Poppy (83), Posy (84), Primrose (85), Priscilla (86), Prudence (87), Rosemary (88), Ruby (89), & Sara (90)

Here are blocks 73 though 81 - Mrs. Taft (73), Mrs. Thomas (74), Nan (75), Nancy (76), Nellie (77), Old Maid (78), Patience (79), Patricia (80), & Peony (81)

Here are blocks 64 through 72 - (Monette (64), Mother (65), Mrs. Anderson (66), Mrs. Brown (67), Mrs. Fay (68), Mrs. Keller (69), Mrs. Lloyd (70), Mrs. Morgan (71), & Mrs. Smith (72))

Here are blocks 55 through 63 - (Malvina (55), Marcella (56), Margaret (57), Martha (58), Mary (59), Mary Gray (60), May (61), Milly (62), & Mollie (63))

Here are blocks 28 through 36 - (Dolly, Doris, Em, Eva, Fanny, Farmer's Wife, Fern, Flora and Geneva)

 Here are blocks 19 through 27 - (Carolina, Caroline, Carrie, Cat, Charlotte, Coral, Crystal, Daffodil and Dinah)

 Here are blocks 10 through 18 - (Ava, Bea, Becky, Belle, Betty, Blossom, Bonnie, Bride, and Carol)

Here are blocks 1-9 - (Addie, Aimee, Alice, Ann, Anne, April, Augusta, Aunt, and Autumn)

I put together a pinterest board of just my Farmer's Wife blocks so I can get a good look at them all at once.  Time to start focusing on the right variety of fabric combinations.

Interested in playing along?  These are from the book -   Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt and there are two great quilt alongs with plenty of tips and ideas.  VeryKerryBerry  is doing the blocks in numerical order while Gnome Angel is doing them in order from easiest to hardest.

My fabrics are from Moda Fig Tree.  There are so many different versions underway right now - so much inspiration out there!

Happy Stitching!
