Farmer's Wife 97-99

One of the interesting parts of paper piecing is sometimes all you need is the smallest of pieces of fabric so saving your scraps really works.   Even the smallest scrap could fit.  The piece below came out of an extra block that never made it into a quilt.

Given how frugal I have been - what an appropriate name for block 97!

#97 - Waste Not

#98 - Waterwheel

#99 - WTCU

12 blocks to go!!!!

The fabric from Rina arrived Tuesday!  She sent me 2 blue pieces so I've enough to finish the quilt and don't have to unpick any more blocks to find small scraps.

The envelope took 1 month to go from Missouri to North Carolina.  Along the way it came to North Carolina, then went off to Arizona, then California then back to North Carolina.  Once back in North Carolina, it has been shuffled back and forth between 2 major cities until finally arriving in my mailbox.    Whew!   Thanks to Rina and Julie I've the right amount of fabric to finish my quilt.  

Blog friends are the best!

Happy Stitching!
