Farmer's Wife 1930's: Monette (64) & Mother (65)

Two more blocks this week.  I probably need to start thinking about how best to assemble this quilt top!

Monette (64)  - Such a pretty name.  This block was easy to assemble although a bit tedious with all those tiny pieces.

Mother (65) - Quick to assemble.  I'm not thrilled with the result for good enough for now anyway!

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!
