Farmer's Wife 1930's: Iris (44) & Jenny (45)

Two blocks this week, taking my overall total to 45 or 99 blocks or 5/9 of the way there!  I need to seriously start thinking about how I am going to arrange these so I can focus on better color and fabric balance.  I put together a pinterest board (of just my Farmer's Wife blocks) to help.

Iris (44) - when I lived in NY, we had beautiful violet colored irises growing in our yard.  I googled to make sure that red ones existed in nature.

Jenny (45) - this block went together quickly!

Every 9 blocks calls for a group photo.  

Here are blocks 37 through 45 - (Georgia, Golda, Grandma, Grandmother, Granny, Heather, Hope, Iris, and Jenny)

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)

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!

  1. Looks like you are doing just fine on color balance to me! Really good looking group of gals here, Iris is an especially pretty little thing!
