4 More Blocks...


#68 
Postage Stamp

This morning I decided to make 4 more farmers wife blocks for my quilt.

I chose to make 4 that were easy and quick to cut and sew because I only had a 2 hour block of time and I really wanted to get them finished so that I can start putting the quilt together.


#69
Practical Orchard


#4
Basket Weave


#48
Homeward Bound

I decided to make a few more so that I would have a total of 52 blocks...
instead of 48 needed for the 6 x 8 setting.
 Now I can add a block in each corner of the border.

It was fun to sew up 4 simple blocks while listening to 
Sometimes simple is the best...
don't you think?

Hi Lori. I love the blocks. I think that the fabric choices are so fun. I just want to say that I was hoping to meet you this last weekend because I was at Quilt Market but I don't know if you were there or if I missed you. Just want to say hi. I'm Michelle Jensen and you can check me out at my blog mixiheart.blogspot.com. I love your lines with Riley Blake and I like checking in on here to see what you have been up to lately in sewing and I love your interest. I hope I get to meet up with you eventually. Thanks again.

I love your fabrics and your blocks are so tidy. I am so very stuck on #47 Homemaker - have had to put it to one side. So nice to see your progress :)

Audiobooks got me thru costume sewing! I listened to a lot of Jane Austen books for three kids costumes. I guess I'm slow!
