Farmer’s Wife: Playing catch-up
I’ve been a slacker of epic proportions on this whole Farmer’s Wife thing. I am trying to get them all cut out, so I can just sew them up quickly, each week. For now, here are my weeks 9 & 10 blocks! (I’m only like 10 weeks behind, darnit!)
#17 Cats and Mice: This one turned out a little softer and more “pastel” than I expected, but I really like it.
#20 Churn Dash: I spent way too much time on this block, making sure that the stripes and the diamonds all went the way I wanted them to. I’m sure I’m just weird, but it drives me crazy when the pattern of the fabric isn’t all the same direction in a block. I love how it turned out though, especially because it doesn’t really look like a churn dash at first glance. Those stripes steal the show!
#19 Checkerboard: Again with the “I’m insane and spent way to long making all the background print go the same direction”, but it pays off. I LOVE this block. The contrast is there, the direction is there, and best of all the navy blue sets off the rest of those bright colors perfectly.
