More Farmer's Wife Blocks

My company is finally gone so I got back into the quilting groove this weekend.  I got four more blocks done for my FWQAL.  I also had four blocks from my other Farmer's Wife quilt that I did not use because the colors did not end up fitting in.  I am not sure I still can use them but I've got them up on my design wall with my other blocks.  They are the ones with black and white fabric.  I am still thinking about it.  If you have any opinions please share.  Sorry for the quality of the picture.  Not my best effort.

I also got my son's quilt pin basted.  This is the first time I have done this.  My other two quilts that I completed I used fusiboo.  Speaking of the 2nd quilt I completed.  I sent it off to my granddaughter without taking a picture.  My daughter is supposed to send pix so I can have a record of it.  Pin basting on the floor for a few hours made me a little creaky.  I am going to straight line quilt it.  Not sure exactly how.  I had to stop at the pin basting point and read my book for my mystery book club for Wednesday. It was set in Saudi Arabia.  Being a women a Saudi Arabia sounds like it is very constraining.


  1. You are in the groove......both look just wonderful!

  2. Your blocks are very pretty. I think you will be able to use the black and white blocks once you get more blocks made and are able to space them further apart.
    Your quilt is beautiful!!

  3. wow..those are such eye catching blocks...hmm....already inspired!!!!
    You do awesome work!
