More FW blocks and the Let's Get Acquainted Link Up




Just a few more Farmer's Wife blocks.  I'm not sure how I am feeling about the fabric choices in the first two - might be redoing those!  I know a few of you have started making some too - link them up so we all can see.

Plum and June

This week's link up is being hosted by the lovely Deborah from Simply Miss Luella.  Click here to add you link, see what everyone else has been making, and to see Deborah's beautiful Liberty pillow.

  1. Oh keep going - if you are not loving them then once they are in a quilt with the rest you will love them more. I think they look great!

  2. Really? The second one in particular I think is great. Navy dots! Low volume gray! Small scale floral! All my favorites in fabric, plus I think you've got good contrast going. Maybe the first one just needs a high-contrast fabric for the "bowtie"? (I'd leave it alone though. I agree with Annabella, that once you get them all put together it will be fine.)

  5. These look fabulous! I have GOT to get going on these soon. Time gets away from me like nobody's business these days. Why is it that I seem to have less sewing time on vacation than I do on my regular schedule?

  7. I agree with the others, don't redo it unless you REALLY don't like them! I am sure that once you put all of the blocks together, they will blend in nicely.....I kinda like the navy dots.

    I finally got my FW blocks posted on my blog. I'd love to have you check them out:

  11. The second block is lovely Beth, you definitely don't need to re-do it. The contrast is a bit lost in the first one, but as the others say I am sure it will look completely different once it is surrounded by other blocks.

  15. I think they're all looking great! I'd second what other people have said about keeping them until the end. I think once you have a good batch together they'll all blend beautifully :)
