Farmer's Wife Blocks 16-20

I did actually finish these during February (my goal is to finish 10 blocks per month) but it has been very rainy so photos had to wait.  Just pretend like I actually took the time to hang the blocks up straight and remove all of the strings.  Oops.

Every time I do another batch of blocks I am using more and more scraps, almost all of the fabrics in these blocks were from the scrap bin, so I think my finished quilt will probably be quite scrappy.  The only fabrics that I am cutting from my stash are the ones that I am fussy cutting and even some of those are coming from scraps.

I also made my March blocks for the Wish Circle of  do. Good Stitches.  It is my month to be the quilter so I wanted to give the blocks a test run.  I chose asterisk blocks, only scaled up to a 9.5" finished block.

A few people asked for a tutorial for the triangle quilt in my last post.  I am not going to post a tutorial but I will be sharing some tips for working with triangles over on the Sassy Quilter for her Triangle Quilt Along.  If you are interested in making a triangle quilt she will be sharing lots of useful information so check it out.

  2. Love your FW blocks. I'm also thinking of starting these blocks...once I get caught up and finish some things that is. I'm obsessed with these quilts lately and cannot wait to see yours once you've finished.
