Farmer's Wife 1930's Progress


I had a nice sewing day today. I got so immersed in my projects that I lost all track of time. In my book, that's the sign of a good day! As you can see, I'm sewing together Farmer's Wife 1930's. I opted to make a smaller quilt made up of 42 blocks. There are 99 blocks available in this book. I used half of the blocks I made today. This piece measures about 25" X 60".


Here's a view of the 3 strips of blocks on the design wall. I'm not sure why but my cats love hitting the design wall from the back and watching the blocks fall off. I don't understand why they enjoy that so much! I took a picture with my phone so I can see where each blocks goes. Silly kitties!


This is just a little picture to show you how each square is prepared before sewn together. I thought this was going to be such a long process. I was so wrong! Once the triangles have been cut, it's actually quick! I sew the triangles to one side of the blocks for one strip. I chain piece each side. Not too bad!! I'm hoping to have all 6 rows sewed together sometime next week. I'm working tomorrow so I won't be able to work on this project for a few days. Hate it when work interferes with my quilting!
