For this week in the Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-long, I just stuck to the two blocks. And, honestly, it was a bit of a struggle to get these out. Having a tough time picking fabrics and I was worried my interest was fading. But I made them, was pretty happy with 1 of them and at least did a get job piecing the other one to end up with a square, and so I put them all together and now I think I am pretty happy with this project again:
I mean, they look kind of crazy together! Maybe a little fun too? Maybe? Still deciding if I am going to do any type of sashing. With only 91 blocks left to make I guess I still have time to figure it out! I think it will be one of those quilts you can just study - so much to see, so many cool fabrics. Probably too much for the eye to take in as a whole, but interesting to examine closely.
Here is  Checkerboard. Funny I skipped this one last week because I wasn't loving it and now I think it's one of my favorites. Lots of Anna Maria Horner X & O's with Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets and stripes.
This is  Contrary Wife with Heather Ross' Far Far Away 1 fairytale frog in the middle of dots and birds. Kind of random. Not enough contrast, too many medium value fabrics, I guess! But it is practically a perfect 6.5" square with most points lining up, so I'll take it!
So, yes, that is 21 and my first picture clearly shows 20 blocks. Hmmm, did I skip a block or lose one? I'll have to investigate...
