FWQ

I got two more of these little guys done.
And then I spent two days hunting around for my Farmer's Wife template CD.
That was fun.
Luckily I found it.  In between my computer tower and desk.
I swear I checked there like ten times.
As you can see organization is not my strong suit.


Well, I'm happy with my two new blocks. 
Numbers 98 (Waterwheel) and 62 (Old Windmill).
I'm starting to see that this two-color color scheme is a little bit tricky.
It's all about contrast for me.  I don't know if I'm just sick of my fabrics or if I need more variation in my reds but picking out my fabric for each block can sometimes take just as much time as it takes me to make the darn thing.

Anyways.  I really am having fun making these little 6" blocks.  Our Farmer's Wife club is meeting this Saturday and I need to have two more blocks made by Saturday (#15 and #35) so I definitely will be sitting down to sew again sometime today.  Sooo glad I found my CD.  That will help.

Happy quilting!

Where did you get your farmer's Wife CD?

Amber said...

Erin,

It came with the Farmer's Wife book I bought from the quilt store I work at. You can find it online if you just google "The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt" book by Laurie Aaron Hird. Good luck!

Hooray for you, two more Farmers Wife blocks finished. Nothing like a deadline to get us into gear. I seem to work best that way. I like the red/white combination.

Gah! I just realized I took my CD out if my computer when I sent the computer off to apple, and I have no idea where I put it!

Very nice blocks. I wish I had time to dig mine out!

Your blocks are so pretty! I have the book and haven't started any yet.
Seeing yours makes me want to get going on them.

Very pretty! What if you added blue to go patriotic, or maybe more subtle, go for gray or pink to stick within the same color family?
