Sewing Up A Storm

I have been sewing like crazy this weekend because I just opened an Etsy shop on Thursday. So I wanted to have some things in it! Many people have told me I should sell my quilts, cards and other crafts so I am going to have a crack at it.

This is the first quilt I made for my shop. All pink! It is a lap quilt but can also cover a twin bed with a three inch drop off the mattress.
I made this little baby quilt today out of 1930’s reproduction fabric. It’s a great little take-along quilt for day trips out with baby. And it was quick to make! 🙂

Farmer’s Wife Week 11

I finished my blocks on Sunday for this week! I was on the ball I guess. 🙂

Block 21: Contrary wife. This one was blessedly easy! LOL. I’ve had this watermellon fabric for years without knowing what to do with it. Finally a bit of it has been sewn into something. 🙂
Block 22: Corn and Beans… except that my green fabric has peas on it. This block is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches (mine are coming out that size finished instead of 6 inches… I think it was my printer when I printed the templates). IT HAS 40 PIECES! And I can say that it was painful but I’m glad I ripped the bandaid off and got it over with. I am proud of the finished block. Happy Farmer’s Wife-ing everyone!

More Farmer’s Wife Blocks

Here are some more Farmer’s Wife blocks as I only started this blog in week 10. It seems to take a long time to upload photos on here so I’m not sure how many I’ll get up before I need to take my son to a birthday party but here goes:

Week 8: Block 16: Calico Puzzle. (I even found some Calico in my stash!)
Week 8: Block 15: Buzzard’s Roost
So I guess the answer to how many photos can I upload right now is 2. I’ll try to get some more up later on. Happy sewing!

Farmer’s Wife Week 10

Hi! Welcome to my blog! It’s week 10 of the Farmer’s Wife quilt-a-long and I finally had the courage to start my own blog. I am new to the blog world so I have a lot to learn but am excited by the prospect. So I’ll start with this week’s Farmer’sWife blocks and work my way back to the beginning.

Churn Dash: After some of the difficult blocks this one was a welcome relief.
Block 19: Checkerboard
Block 18: Century of Progress. I don’t know about the other quilters but I found this one quite tricky. One of my points isn’t perfect in the centre but I just don’t have it in me to re-do it. I will embrace imperfection.

Block 17: Cats & Mice. This block took some time to cut out but I think it turned out quite well and I am happy with it. So these were the blocks I sewed this week. Week 9 and week 10. I am relieved to be caught up again. I will leave it at that for now as I don’t want to overwhelm those who read this. Happy quilting to my fellow quilters
