Farmer's wife - week 14

Happy Friday! I am pretty excited for the weekend for no particular reason. I think we will be guest free, so I should get to work on some things. It did occur to me though, that I am supposed to have jury duty next week and if I do, that means pretty much no sewing time. We'll see I guess.

Anyway, back to the farmer's wife. I made 6 blocks this week, bringing me up to 70! Only 41 more blocks to go, can that really be true?!? If I want it done by the end of the year I will have to step it up though. And I think I have a new sashing in mind since I couldn't get the one I was planning to get. I am not sure yet, but I'll decide soon.

Here are this weeks blocks!

#9 - Box
Simple and Lovely.

#70 - Prairie Queen
I don't really get this one. I don't really see a very clear design. But it's nice I suppose

#7 - Birds in the Air
I love this one! It was the perfect block to do in rainbow and it came out great!

#49 - Honeycomb
This looks great with these polka dots. A lot of the ones with super small pieces don't look as good in this fabric, but this is awesome.

#25 - Cups & Saucers
Great pattern! Love it!

#68 - Postage Stamp
I am loving how this came out. I didn't think I was really going to like it, but it's pretty sweet.

And here they are together

Everything is looking good and I am super happy with it. I think my stack of blocks is now taller than my stack of folded fabric for this quilt :) I hope I have enough to get to the end. I am cutting it close, but I think I can make it. There are only a few that I am really almost out of, and that probably means I've used them too much and should use some others anyway. So there you are. I have a project started that I hope to finish this weekend so hopefully that will be up Monday. Have a good weekend everyone!
