One of my goals this year is to make a Farmers Wife Quilt Sampler. I am hoping I have not bitten off more than I can chew! I plan on making this a King sized quilt.
So here are the first 5 blocks that I have made.
Block # 2 Autumn Tints
There are 111 blocks in this sampler so I will either repeat or add some other blocks.
Block #20 Churn Dash
Each block measures 6 inches finished. As you probably guessed I will be using Bonnie and Camille fabrics for my Farmers Wife Quilt.
Block # 80 Single Wedding Star
also known as Rolling Stone
So far I have really been enjoying making these blocks. I made all these blocks by figuring out the math's and rotary cutting them. The book does provide a CD with templates, but that then requires you to print off all the templates for each block, which is something I am avoiding at the moment.
Block #31 Evening Star
also known as Sawtooth Star
This is one of my most favourite blocks, and I have made this block a number of times in the past for Bee Blocks.
So now the weekend is here! What plans do you have for sewing tonight?
I came across a free pattern for a mini Single Wedding Star block over at Hopes blog When Inspiration Strikes. Its tiny! so I have plans to have a go at making one tonight. Hope also has some quilt patterns on Craftsy which is where you will also find her free pattern for the Single Wedding Star/Rolling Stone block.
Hopefully I will get to share my mini block with you sometime over the weekend.
