Farmer's Wife 1930's - Mrs. Smith (72) & Mrs. Taft (73)

Two new blocks this week plus a review of all the blocks - group shots for each nine blocks!

Mrs. Smith (72) - Slightly wonky block both because I didn't press it and, well, because it is a bit off.  Had to use my seam ripper which is no fun with those tiny, tiny stitches.

Mrs. Taft (73) - I just love these two color blocks.  Such a dramatic look.

Each time I complete a group of 9, I do a group shot.  So here we go through block 72.   There are 99 blocks in total so I'm three group shots away from being done!

Here are blocks 64 through 72 - (Monette (64), Mother (65), Mrs. Anderson (66), Mrs. Brown (67), Mrs. Fay (68), Mrs. Keller (69), Mrs. Lloyd (70), Mrs. Morgan (71), & Mrs. Smith (72))

Here are blocks 55 through 63 - (Malvina (55), Marcella (56), Margaret (57), Martha (58), Mary (59), Mary Gray (60), May (61), Milly (62), & Mollie (63))

Here are blocks 46 through 54 - (Jewel (46),  Joy (47),  Judy (48), Katherine (49),  Lady (50), Lily (51), Lola (52), Lucy (53) and Magnolia (54))

Here are blocks 1-9 - (Addie, Aimee, Alice, Ann, Anne, April, Augusta, Aunt, and Autumn)

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!


  1. Really, really nice and I can't get over how different your blocks look than mine! So about two months or so left??

  2. Your blocks are beautiful! And I love your color scheme. How many more do you make?
