wednesday. . .



{low(er) volume  . . .  again}


{farmer's wife block 1 - foundation pieced  - I purposely did not center the novelty print but now I think it looks like a mistake?}


{farmer's wife block 2 - rotary cut}

Anyone else working on the Farmer's Wife blocks?

Linking to WIP Wednesday.

  1. Dont think of it as a mistake, think of it as a design element.

  2. Cute blocks! How many have you made? I have made about 20 so far. Back when I started it my piecing skills weren't up to snuff. I should get back into it.

    Will you be at the meeting this Sunday? I plan to be there!!!

  3. I love the scrappy approach you're taking to those FW blocks. I definitely want to do the same!

  4. I'm excited to see you and Heidi plow through the FW blocks. :)

    I can see how it might look like a mistake... but in the grand scheme of this giant quilt, I bet it won't bug you as much.

  6. I agree, I think when you look at an individual block it might be a glaringly obvious mistake/flaw, but when you put your blocks together, you'll see the cute little girl popping out of the corner - just like you designed.

  8. I have been wanting to make this quilt for over a year. I am still looking for the perfect fabric.

  9. Love the LV look, and yes it might look like a mistake on it's own, but like the other ladies said, once they're all in there together it wont get noticed i'm sure. :o)

  10. Such cute fabrics! That little girl is very cute and I am sure when it's in the whole quilt you won't even worry about it any more. It's going to be great!

  11. Both of your blocks are adorable and I love that you did the one novelty print off center. Something different. I like it. Excellent work!

  12. Can't wait to see the low volume! I like the off-centered one, but I'm not familiar with the "regular" style block.

  13. These blocks look great! I abandoned the farmer's wife long ago! Maybe I'll go back one day. I think I was very put off by the fabrics in the book :)

  14. Both blocks are lovely. I like the off center of the novelty print. Are you doing a Farmer's Wife Quilt? I really want to make one :)

  15. So sweet. I really like them both. Yes, I finished all 111 blocks, the top is together. All I need to do is finish the back and send it off to the quilter.

  16. Oh love the LV fabrics and I think the FW block looks cool.

  17. This one keeps getting pushed back. I was excited to see another push of FW but seemed to be missing the boat for the second time. Love your fabrics

  18. I am way late! I just started my Farmer's Wife Quilt. I have made 2 blocks so far. Are you doing a quilt along? I would love to have a partner to work along side for this quilt .

  19. I like the off centre choice. Your farmer's wife block reminds me of all the blocks!!!!!

  20. I'm not working on them but I really like seeing everyone elses FW blocks :)

  21. Love the Farmer's Wife quilt blocks! I got through four Farmer's Wife blocks last year, but then I promptly forgot about it. My taste in fabric has changed since then, so I'll probably start from the beginning if I ever attempt again!

  22. I didn't notice that the center was off until you mentioned it. You could quilt a yellow sun next to her, and it wouldn't look off center then.
