Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt Week 8 Blocks13 - 16

I got caught up on my farmer's wife blocks yesterday. It had been 2 weeks since I made one and was falling behind. I really love these blocks. I like to cut the fabric for a few blocks at a time and then sew them up at one time. And I'm still really enjoying the Strawberry Fields fabric. I did have a few issues with size this time but I think it will be fine. I used my old singer for 2 blocks and they were smaller than the others. I rely on the markings on my machine and walking foot more than I realized.


 I caught up on some bee blocks too!

This will become a kitchen aide for Lauree for the cocorico bee.  This block is really fun! I ♥ it!


 I also finished 2 blocks for Erin, her month is July for the Aqua and Red Bee! I loved the fabrics for these!

Thanks for the kind comments about the last little quilt I really appreciate them. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Stay cool (or warm) depending on where you are :)

Ya know, Erin...I am finding that the Strawberry Fields fabric is working out well for everyone who is using it. I am loving it! And, great job on your blocks...they look great! The kitchen mixer...how cool is that!!! And, the dresden plates...did you zigzag the edges? They look great, too!

Lovely variety of blocks! The red fabric really animates the FW blocks and the kitchen aid is wonderful, esp the big orange spot fabric!

I love your work. How did you set up the 12 month block quilt? It looks like fun. Would love to try it.

Really? An orange Kitchenaid? That would be my choice of color for sure! Except that my husband does most of the cooking and he chose industrial grey. *sigh*
