I only managed to squeak out one Farmer's Wife Block in the last 2 weeks which means I am behind schedule again but I'm hoping that I will be able to knock out a few this weekend.

I am still working on sewing together my hexagons by hand which is another very time consuming project. But it is pretty relaxing until you start to get a callus on your finger. Yeah I'm one of those who refuses to wear a thimble. I can't explain it they just feel weird. But I've never been a fab of gloves or anything like that either so I guess my hands are like my feet, they like to be free.

I've found at this point it's a little easier to sew clumps together and then add the clumps to the main piece which is why it is such a strange shape but hey it seems to be working for me.
The last little project I worked on was this quilt top for Nichol. A group from the Old Red Barn Quilt Along Group broke off to create traveling quilts this year. I am in a group that is doing a round style quilt. So I started with Nic's middle which was the pinwheels inside of the brown boarder. I changed my plan about a million times but this is where I ended up.

I think the hardest part about this group for me is that there is no real direction. I think everyone wanted to leave it open ended so the biggest restriction so far has been a request to stay with a color scheme.
|I borrowed this photo from Nichol because this is where she ended.|
Well that's a look at what I'm working on. Be sure to head over to Lee's to check out what everyone else is up to on this WIP Wednesday.
