Farmer’s Wife – Week 19

Nothing makes me grumpier than having to sew a block over again. When I looked at the digital collage of my last group of Farmer’s Wife blocks, I saw three of my blocks did not play well with the others. I love how digital photos make my errors jump off the wall. So, three of my blocks this week are do-overs:

Did I end up with better blocks? Yes. Was I happy about having to do them over again? No.

The next three blocks are the new blocks for Week 19:

I try to learn from my mistakes, so I know I need to work to find a little more contrast in the fabrics I use in these blocks, and also try to stay in the same tonal families.

I also finished up my September block for the EQ Block of the Month Challenge. This block is called September Soother.

I like the strong graphic nature of these blocks being designed by Andrea Bishop at EQ. I have chosen strong black and white prints for these blocks and am interested in seeing how they all come together at the end of the challenge. Since it’s already the middle of October, I’d better get cracking on the October block…

Until next time,

  1. Stink. I am buzzing through my reader, cause I ‘just don’t have the time’ to properly read, and I hit these fabulous pictures of Farmer’s Wife Quilt blocks. So, I scoot back up to the top to see whose they are. Lo and behold, it’s you!! Surprise, surprise – NOT!! Joan, you kill me. I love your work. I love how you think. I love your color choices/combos. I want to be you (or Jen) when I ‘grow up’ as a quilter. I need to take a class from you. Why don’t you do that on your blog???? Actually, that all just randomly came out, but it is a great idea!!! Nothing like me creating work for you to do!! hahaha Hugs!

  2. your blocks are sensational – and that country farm would look fabo in my fwqa – just my colours!

    have seen a few of your eq challenge blocks and really looking fwd to seeing this together.
