Farmer's Wife Blocks 21-25

I am still working on my Farmer's Wife Blocks, though to stay on schedule I need to make 5 more blocks by the end of the month (may not happen).  It has been very gloomy here.  I know that I shouldn't complain about the weather since it is perfect in San Diego almost all of the time, but when it rains all I want to do is stay in bed and read.  This has not been a productive week.
Farmers Wife Blocks 21-25
All of these came from scraps except for the pigs and the strawberries.  It has been a fun challenge to dig through my scrap bins and use up some tiny pieces.

Also, I wanted to mention that I guest posted over at The Sassy Quilter about making Triangle Quilts.  She is hosting a Triangle Quilt Along and is going to be including lots of tips and tricks about sewing triangles.

  2. If you want to trade, I'll take the rain any day! You can come up here (Canada) and have some of our snow. Love these blocks, especially the little fussy cut pigs. TOO cute!

  9. Erica, I am sooooo close to taking the plunge on this too! I'm making some money from my last custom quilt project and I've decided that instead of putting it in the bank to be used for whatever household things I'm going to commit it to a new project that will be a challenge for me and an ongoing thing so I'm strongly considering picking up this book and fabric to make it. Eek! Are the blocks hard....I hear talk of templates which doesn't excite me!! :)

  14. Pretty bright blocks. I feel the same in grey weather. I can't complain either because the weather in South Australia is very similar to Southern California!
