Farmer's Wife Blocks 11-15

Happy Valentine's Day!  I will be spending V-Day volunteering at my daughter's school and then binding a quilt on the couch while I watch About Time for the third time this week (I love it!).  My husband left on Wednesday to go to Washington DC until the end of the month :(  At least I get to spend the day with my kids, my husband is spending his with his co-workers.

My daughter is very particular about clothes and always picks her own outfits.  She has been excited to choose her Valenetine's outfit and wanted me to take a photo of her this morning before school.  You  might think that this outfit would be cold for Valentine's day except it is supposed to be 80 DEGREES TODAY!

I am moving along with my Farmer's Wife blocks.  Since my goal is to make 10 blocks per month and making all 10 at once last month was a little too much, I though I'd try doing them in batches of 5.  Five blocks was much more manageable. I just cut the pieces for all 5 blocks and then chain pieced them together.

These are turning out to be pretty fun and I am not hating the templates nearly as much as I anticipated. It is a very messy project and there are lots of little pieces of fabric and lots of big piles of fabric all over the place.  But I guess that's not really much different than how things normally are around here :)

  1. Whenever my husband is out of town I get a TON of sewing done--basically all of my free time in the evening every night, haha. Your daughter looks so cute! What a great dress. Your blocks look great, I especially love the fussy cut bottom left one!

  6. What a cutie! Valentines Day is one of those things that I know my kids miss out on with homeschooling. I always loved that day at school!

  7. Your Farmer's wife blocks are looking lovely! I'm usually cutting one out at a time as I'm hand piecing and it gets a little much when I see I have 35 pieces to cut out for 1 block! But still, it's great when all those little pieces come together to make a fabulous block :)

  8. I love that movie! My husband and I saw it last fall at the Savannah Film Festival. It makes you appreciate an ordinary, wonderful life. Also, I pretty much love Rachel McAdams in anything.
