Farming Friday

Its Farming Friday, and I am still on track making my blocks for my Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt.
Having decided to blog every Friday  about my FWSQ and the blocks I have made is  certainly motivating me to make sure I have something to show of my FWSQ blocks, so I have a really good feeling I will get this quilt made sooner rather than later!

Gentleman's Fancy
This block was made using a paper pieced pattern from the FWSQ Yahoo Group.
TIP: If your have never done any paper piecing  before then I would recommend choosing an easy block to start with.  This block is a easy block to paper piece.

Streak of Lightning
A very easy block – I had no problems figuring out the quilt maths for this one!
Postage Stamp
Another very easy block, no problems sewing this one together!IMG_2120
Another quick and easy block, I see a pattern forming this week!IMG_2123
This block was not quite so easy as all the rest,with all those half square triangles, it makes it a little difficult to press.
TIP: With this block make sure you press your seams open.
If your making FWSQ Blocks let me know so I can see what you have been up to.  And if your not then why not join in.  A new group has just started on Flickr for the Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt 2014. It’s a lot of fun joining in sewing with other people making the same blocks, and its interesting to see how the same block can look made with different fabric.
Have a Great Weekend and Thanks for Stopping by.


  1. You are already churning out these blocks, way to go Sam!

  2. This puts the one block I managed to make this morning to shame. Granted it was Century of Progress and took an hour and a half to do the dumb thing. I love your blocks. They really look great.

  3. Amazing progress! Love your fabric choices for the last block. This is going to be a very pretty quilt.

    Hope all is well.
