Farmers Wife...Finishing Up the Blocks...




I've got 4 more farmers wife blocks to show you.
I now have 48 blocks sewn...
and that's how many I need for my quilt!
Yay!!!
I am not making all of the blocks in the book...
(there are 111 total)
 I wanted to make it smaller so that my quilt can hang on my kitchen wall.

My quilt will measure
55" x 69"
which will fit perfectly for the space that I have planned.


#45
Grape Basket



#85
Square Dance


#98
Waterwheel



#106
Wild Rose


Now it's time to think about sashings and borders.
After auditioning several fabrics from my stash...I like the way these 5 go together so these are what I have decided on.
What do you think?
Good choice?



I'm using Pam's small yellow polka dot for my sashings...
and my Sew Cherry yellow sew leaves for the borders...
my Sew Cherry red gingham for the binding...
 and finally the Annie's Farm Stand seed catalogue prints for the backing.

Now to lay out the blocks and get them into rows!
Wish me luck:)
Have a quilty weekend my friends!

P.S. Stay tuned...I have a really fun announcement on Monday:)

Pin It!

Good choices. I would love to see your backing when it is finished.

your Sew Cherry Yellow Leaves is one of my favorite yellow blenders...it is the perfect shade of yellow. Most of the time, I find yellow fabrics to be either too orangy-yellow, or too pale. Love it!

Candice said...

Ok, you're blocks are just amazing- I have been drooling over them the past year! :) NOW I am also drooling over the fact that you have enough seed catalogue to back it!! WOW- I have been lucky enough to get a fat quarter of a couple of the colors and would swoon over this much! Just gorgeous!! WOW again!

Your FW will be so cute! I'm going to start over and break open my FQ packs of Sew Cherry and Polka Dot Stitches. I was wondering whose bee fabric that is? Is that one of yours? Would you share the name of the fabric?

Thanks!
