1930's Farmer's Wife Odd Blocks

No photo description available.

I finished quilting all the blocks of my  Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler quilt. I had some odd shapes to quilt as I reached the end. This happened to be one of them. There is a reason I buy so many quilt books! I got some great ideas looking through books by Angela Walters, Natalia Bonner and Amanda Murphy. I got out the ruler and made 1/2 inch lines.

I got this idea after quilting the arcs around the squares. It's nothing fancy but it works great in this space. I was very happy with it!

I quilted wishbones in the lighter fabric so the darker orange will puff up. So easy!  I also stitched in the ditch in all seams. I'm getting better at it but still need more practice.

I'm still working on my curved cross hatching. It's not perfect but good enough. Once washed, these stitching lines become softer and harder to find errors. (I hope!)

I think my kitties have found a new game. They have decided to wreck my batting hanging off the longarm! However, I don't leave it hanging anymore. I pull it over the longarm to keep it from getting dusty. Bad kitties! Thankfully, my quilt ends before I would even have needed this part of my batting so it doesn't matter that they made holes in it. 

Although the blocks have been quilted, I now have to quilt between the blocks. I'll probably quilt feathers I'm going back to work tomorrow so I have some time to think about it. Wish I was still on vacation!

    1. Thanks, Julierose! I've had batting hanging off the longarm before and neither cat touched it. All of a sudden, it's their favorite pastime! So fresh!!
