Hmm. There only seem to be 18 Farmers Wives here. There are 24 on my design wall, honest. I worked on Coral and Charlotte yesterday, easier blocks, but they still take an hour or so to do. There are 75 more to go, then the sashing and borders. I’m glad I’m doing this over a years time.
I also worked a bit on the Allietare mystery quilt, I finished the 294 HSTs, I made 300, as I could get 30 right triangles out of each 2″strip of grey. No pictures of those, pretty boring anyway. I have not pulled the other fabrics red, gold, black for it yet. I think I have enough of them, its just that I have so many other half done projects out and in progress, I am hesitant to add to the chaos. I have my BOMs coming this week too, so there will be lots of fun to be had. I’m going to try to make some progress on my Moda Building Blocks, I started quilting it last week. I used all Cherrywood fabrics, it is muted, but in a mellow way. There are many blocks and I want to do each a bit different, I am scouring Pinterest looking for ideas. Its a little cold in that room this time of year, and the natural light doesn’t last long. Pictures next time, promise.
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday .

Very pretty. I’m not sure what quilt you are doing with Farmer’s Wives, but looks like it will be pretty. I’m curious about the 2nd block on the top row, the star with the little fussy cut block in it.
Hi, They are from the Farmer’s Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt by Laurie Aaron Hind. They’re 6 ½ ” each, and set on point with sashing. This quilt is a departure from my usual color/tone picks, but I’m having fun with it. The star with the fussy cut square is called “Coral”. These are all paper pieced, but the cd included with the book gives templates for each block as well.
Wow – you’ve got stamina… I didn’t realize how many blocks were in the Farmer’s Wife. You’re doing a beautiful job and will enjoy the rewards of the finish!
