Farmer's Wife: Belle (13) and Betty (14)

Having fun with these Farmer's Wife blocks!

(13) Belle - the dreaded y seams!  I read all about this on other blogs so approached this simple block with few pieces with trepidation.  I took it slow and broke assembling the block into two days so I tackled those y seams when I was rested.

And I did it - didn't need to use the seam ripper (which could be a first ever for a y-seam block)

(14) Betty - I just love this one.  This fabric looks so pretty against the milky white background.

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.

Fabrics are from Moda Fig Tree.

Happy Stitching!

  1. Two more beautiful blocks, great fabric combos. I am still a bit ahead in one and behind in the other qal...getting a bit confusing keeping track!


Leave a stitch...
