Farmer's Wife - Nancy (76) & Nellie (77)

Two more blocks this week - another one in my sister series - I've a sister named Nancy!

Nancy (76) - Nice easy block - I like this fabric combination

Nellie (77) - I was almost going to skip ahead given this one has so many pieces but did the block.  It looks like it needs a good pressing. Some of those tiny squares are a bit wonky but I'll never notice in the bigger quilt.

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!
