Farmers Wife: 07/04

I have four new farmers wife quilt blocks to show you this week! I've been a little behind recently, but got cracking away on them over the weekend. I really enjoy making these, choosing fabrics is of course my favourite part :) though this can end up taking more time than actually making the blocks!? I'm using mainly 1930s reproduction prints, as I want to achieve a nostalgic look. Below is #30 End of Day, #111 Wrench and #37 Flower Pot#75 Rosebud.
I have 9 in total now, although I have made 3 more but they have been rejected! I may think differently once I start laying them all out together, but it's not a total loss I will have to turn them into mug rugs or something? :) Jessie, xo

  1. Cute blocks, I really really like the fabrics in #30, they're so springy! I just started my very first Farmer's Wife blocks last week. Two so far!

  3. If auditioning fabrics is as much fun as making the quilt...you are officially a Quilter! You're making great progress.

  7. Wow... They are great, I find them more complicated than others you've made. Well, I've just bought fabrics for my first quilt!!!! It's going to be very simple, but I'm very excited!It'll be a baby blanket as present for my future niece :) Thanks for motivate me!

  8. So cute! Choosing fabrics is not my favorite part. I second guess myself like crazy. I think I need to relax a bit and just have fun. I envy those, like you, who can do it so well.
