Farmer's Wife 1930's - Mrs. Fay (68) & Mrs. Keller (69)

Boy oh boy, did I fall off the Farmer's Wife Wagon!!

Between graduation, summer, vacation, summer and other sewing, I put aside my two blocks per week Farmer's Wife blocks.

I've no true deadline for this quilt but I've made sooooooo many blocks that I will finish it!

Mrs. Fay (68) -  I think the brown and red are my two favorite fabric combinations!

Mrs. Keller (69) - This was a fun and relatively easy block to assemble!

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!
