A Little Farming (Week 25)

Pretty little stack of blocks

My love hate relationship with the farmer is continuing.  I haven't been making a whole lot of progress on this one lately and it's already week 25 which means I should have 50 blocks completed and be just about half way done.  But I only have 40 blocks finished.  In reality I'm not as far behind as I thought I was.  Just ten blocks really isn't too bad and really I have one that just needs a little fixing and two that could be finished if I wasn't remaking them because I don't like the fabric choices.  But when all is said and done and all things are accounted for I have a strong 40 blocks and I'm okay with that.  Here's a look at what I worked on this past week.

Block # 5 Bat Wing
Block # 8 Bouquet
Block # 44 Gentleman's Fancy
I think Bouquet is my favorite out of this group.  I like them all but that one is just so cute.  Sorry for the bad lighting but my sewing space doesn't have great light.  I keep wanting to get one of those daylight lamps for my room but haven't yet.  Maybe Santa will bring me one (wink wink).

Please don't mind the mess I ripped my sheets off my bed to snap this photo.
Here is a look at them all laid out together in no particular order.  I pulled the sheets off my bed and threw them all out there together and snapped a quick picture.  I don't have a design wall and I have these all put in a plastic tub as I finish them so I was hoping to get a feel for balance of color.  Funny even in this photo Farmer's Puzzle and the Snowball block stick out as my favorites.  Do you have a favorite block yet?


  1. You have done a fantastic job with your blocks!!!
    Your Bouquet is definitely my favourite block of yours or mine....and mine isn't done!!! Did you have to use templates?
    I haven't gotten very far with my blocks...last night I made one with "sew cherry" fabric!
    I have a daylight that I sit under each morning and do 30 minutes of hand applique...I miss the sun too much in the winter time!
    My husband put a small florescent light in my sewing room which helps a lot, especially at night.

  2. They all look great, I agree, the Farmer's Puzzle is really nice and I like the bouquet. I'm going to try to do another one tonight.
