Made two Farmer's Wife blocks this week.
Block 9 - Autumn. I hadn't intended to use this particular brown/tan fabric in this block but sewed almost the entire thing together before I realized I intended to do this block with a lighter shade to offer more contrast with the red. Decided not to take it all apart though!.
Block 10 - Ava
Since there are 99 blocks in total, I decided to gather the first 9 together for a group shot and will do the same for each group of 9 until all the blocks are done.
They are so much fun to take out and play with! Fabrics are from Moda Fig Tree.
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.
When I made my first quilt (glamour shots here) from Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt , I made the books in numerical order because I was determined to make all of them and knew if I left the toughest to the end, I would avoid those tough ones all together.
However, if you only want to make some of them, starting with the easiest is a great idea. You'll end up with lots of blocks and can decide to stop at any time.
Although, for me, making these blocks are a bit like eating potato chips. It is hard to stop.
