I'm happy to report that I'm still keeping up on the Farmer's Wife quilt along. In fact, this week I jumped ahead a bit and made four blocks! The other day I was looking at my schedule and realized that there are at least 8 weeks that I won't be able to make blocks and that doesn't include all the weeks that I won't feel like it! So, I need to do some doubling up whenever the inspiration strikes because I'd love to finish this on schedule with everyone else. If you haven't checked out the group yet, you should. Amazing blocks are posted everyday!
Unfortunately I didn't take pictures of the single blocks and I'm blogging from work so I have to use the pictures from my flickr stream.
Block #? (I'll fill in later)
Fabric: the pink recipe fabric is by Kumiko Fujita and is just the cutest! It also comes in aqua, which I don't have. If you have some you'd like to swap, please let me know! The stripes in that block are by Suzuko Koseki and the brown dots are Lecien medium in brown.
Block #1(?) Attic Windows (I think)
Fabric: The greenish fabric is Lecien (my folklore, I think), pink heath, the macaron was fussy cut from Yuwa's super cute pastry fabric, and I used those brown dots again because I love them.
Fabric: The apple fabric is Clothesline Club Sweet Treats #7775 by Robert Kaufman. I don't know what the dots are but I'd love more! The fabric was a random fat quarter at my LQS.
This block was a nightmare for me. You can read about my attempts on my flickr picture.
Fabric: The dots are those coral-y red ones from Joann's that I used in previous blocks and the floral print is vintage. I bought it for curtains in my kitchen. It's a poly blend and was a slippy pain to sew with. But it's cute.
I was so flattered (shocked!) when Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts contacted me to ask if she could feature my Japanese + and x quilt on her beautiful blog for her Flickr Friday Inspiration post. She wrote such nice things about my quilt (in progress) and makes me think that she must be the sweetest person. Check out her cute pin cushion tutorial too!
In reading her post, I realized that I haven't even blogged about my progress on that quilt! So, I will have to make it my mission to take some pictures this weekend and write something up. That is another quilt along that should not be missed! It's also a no pressure go-at-your-own pace QAL. Love.
Thanks Jennifer, you totally made my Friday :)
