Playing catchup on my Farmer's Wife...

Posted by Strlady at 10:12 AM
I have been bad at blogging lately but not at making my blocks! I'm just saying!

During the same retreat I completed the full quilt I mentioned yesterday, I also finished 10 FW blocks. Funny how I finished a full quilt in one day and it took two days to make 10 blocks!!! I'm thinking that something is not right there.

Okay, enough with the complaining. Here are my first 5 blocks (I'll post the other 5 tomorrow):

Block 4 - Easy peasy! This was a relief after piecing a few of the others.

Block 6 - I experimented with some colors on this one.
Not sure how I feel about it yet but I think it could grow on me.

Block 18 - This one was the most difficult block in the bunch.Funny thing is that when I asked my daughter how she felt about this block she said it was one of her easy blocks!! I said "WHAT?!". 
I tried tackling this one as a paper piece block and I think that might have been the culprit. 
I had to redo this one a few times just because I kept putting it together wrong. Ugh!!

Moving on since dwelling on it is causing me stress. LOL!

Block 41 - After that debacle I decided to try something I felt confident in. 
This one was lovely!

Block 52 - This one was not tooooo bad. 
Many pieces lead to a few redos but I was really happy with the end result.

That's that, for now.

I need to get back to my poor abandoned FW blocks. I don't think I have worked on them since September! Thanks for the inspiration!

Your blocks are lovely! Like the prior commenter, I need to get back to my blocks too.
