Farmer's Wife 1930'2 - Priscilla (86) & Prudence (87)

Two more blocks this week although, sadly, not thrilled with my ability to follow directions on either of them.

Priscilla (86) - This block looks not quite as orange in person as it does in the photo.  This was an easy block with few pieces but I still had to do it twice since I messed up the color placement the first time!

Prudence (87)  -   I marked up the printed pattern a bit to avoid a large amount of odd shaped y seams.  Now that the block is all done, though, I see I made a bit of a mistake in the coloring  - those 4 outer corners of the 9 patch are supposed to be HST.  Not changing it though.  I like it the way it is!

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!
