On the Funny Farm...


 Today I thought I would show you a few more of my 
 blocks that I have completed.

 I feel like I'm on the funny farm because I am on the final time crunch to get things wrapped up to send to fall market in Houston.
Sew much work but sew much fun!!!

Pictures of all of those projects are coming soon...
but for right now...pictures of FW blocks.

This quilt is so much fun to work on...
and I love using bits of fabrics that look like they might have been in a quilt that the wife of a farmer made many years ago.

I'd really like to get this quilt finished up and on my kitchen wall where it belongs...soon!

I'm hoping that you have a quilty kind of day my friends:)

Gorgeous! Love the fabrics you used.

You must have a BIG wall if you're making all of the Farmer's Wife Blocks. I just finished making all 111 of them this month and my top is assembled and ready to quilt. I had to take it outside for a picture. I love your use of colors in the blocks.

Oh Lori! I absolutely love you! I was on my way to a Pity Party, just me, no guests, when I decided to visit your blog...it always cheers me up and spurs me on!!! Although it does nothing for pity party's! Thanks so much for the lift and the very much needed inspiration...I'm off now to have a quilty kind of day! Pity Party averted! xo, Nan

I don't think your blocks could be any more perfect!!! I love all of the fabrics you've used!! I think they all go really really well together :)

Your blocks are so precious! They really do remind me of what a farmer's wife might use. :o) Such darling prints.
I was curious if you happen to know what the background fabric is in your cups and saucers block? (White with the little blue and red flowers.)
I have been sewing non stop and it feels fantastic!!
I finished the apple blocks and can't wait to show them!! Gosh this is a darling block Lori! Thanks for having us make it. :o)
Have a great afternoon. Trish xo

I love your choice of fabrics for this quilt. Can't wait until I see the whole thing. It is going to be so pretty. I think I am going to have to make one after seeing your blocks. I have just put it on my "to do list."

I've seen lots of the FMQA online and yours is BY FAR the prettiest! I think it's cuz I love the fabrics you've chosen so much - it really compliments the scrappy, pretty look! :) ♥

I have the farmer's wife book but it will probably be FOREVER before I get to making them. I sure wish I had access to your fabric stash! These are beautiful!

Your blocks are so happy! I've been resisting the urge to make this quilt but seeing your blocks....I might just have to give in and at least make a few...
Lovely job. Have a great time at market:)

Margie Scott said...

Beautiful blocks! I love your choice of colors. I'm working on the FW sampler too and am doing it scrappy as well. I agree, they are so much fun to do and I am learning so much from doing them.

I have been making the Farmer's Wife blocks using the 1930's prints. What fun these blocks are. Have done quite a few but lots to finish. What a great project. Yours are just beautiful.
