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! 🙂
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!
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!
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
