Farmers Wife Blocks 17-24

Hanging in there with the Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-Long! Albeit very has been so hot here in Darwin I haven't been doing much sewing, the room my machine is in does not have aircon :( But my lounge room does :) So I have been spending my evenings fiddling around with choosing fabrics, tracing templates, and cutting little the air's quite therapeutic!

I have eight blocks for show and tell today (whoop whoop!)

(17) Cats and Mice

(18) Century of Progress....didn't like this one...I had to do it twice!!

(19) Checkerboard

(20) Churn dash

(21) Contrary Wife

(22) Corn & Beans

(23) Country favourite

(24) Country Path...2nd favourite

Here's all the blocks together....

I am pretty happy with how this is looking...but I really need use more blue and green....

And I love this stack o'blocks photo...not as great as this stack though!

Note: gleaming brand new iron in's black and classy!

I think I might stop at 30 blocks....what do you think?


  1. your farmer's wife blocks look amazing!

  2. I wandered over from Lily's Quilts - your blocks are beautiful! You can tell that alot of care went into the blocks both in color selection as well as workmanship. Your quilt will be gorgeous!
