Farmer's Wife 1930's: Martha (58) & Mary (59)

I'm holding out on myself.

I am so very tempted to lay out all the blocks and see how they look together but am holding out until I get done block 66 which will be the 2/3's complete mark.

Not sure I have the willpower to wait though....  Until then, here are two more blocks

Martha (58) - hadn't used orange in awhile so it was time.

Mary (59) -  Easier than it looked!   I also hadn't used any of the dotted background fabric recently so gave it a try for this block

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!
