Farmer's Wife Sew Along- Day Two . . .

My plan of devoting one day a month to my Farmer's Wife blocks is working out great. I"ll probably always be behind the group, especially since I got a late start, but maybe I'll have a super productive day every now and then and be able to crank out more than 6 blocks.

So here are my latest blocks, I'm doing them in order,

Blocks Seven and Eight

Blocks Nine and Ten

And blocks Eleven and Twelve.

This is the red fabric I plan to use for my sashing and here's all my blocks so far. (I've GOT to get that handle on that basket!!)

I'm pretty much loving every single block.

Just in case you're new to my blog, I'm using French General fabric by Kaari Meng for Moda and am shrinking my blocks down to 4 inches instead of 6 inches as in the book.

Red and White Quilt update, those school house blocks are pesky, I still love them, but they're pesky, hopefully I'll have pictures of some progress later this week.


  1. Wow, I love all your blocks! Sometimes you just have to devote time to them, but I would be more inclined to do more time... Just because!

  2. Thelma, your blocks are gorgeous! Sara and I have decided to join in this Farmers Wife Quilt Along. Today we plan to make little design boards for our blocks. Our fabrics are all picked out and we are ready to try to play catch up!

  3. Love your blocks Thelma. This is going to be one beautiful quilt!

  4. These are turning out really lovely! The red sashing really sets them off. *sillysally* aka choc chip addict

  5. I love how you put your completed blocks on the color you'd eventually like to sash with. You really get a feeling of making progress on the quilt.

  6. Great progress on your blocks ! They are GORGEOUS! You just can not go wrong with french general !

  7. Wonderful blocks!!! This is going to be spectacular in French General fabrics:)

  8. I like your method of attack on the FW blocks. they are coming along beautifully!

  9. Those are some amazing 4" blocks. Wow!
