I finished three more blocks from the Farmer's Wife book. (psst: #59 and #57 are on my all-time favorites list)
But, I've also been branching out. Many of the Farmer's Wife blocks I have left have so many fabrics and teeny tiny pieces. Yet, I have many mid scale prints left that have to be in this quilt.
I have adored the Tallahassee block since Penny's paper piecing workshop. I'm so excited by how this turned out. Tutorial and templates at Quilters Cache. (I couldn't get the templates to print at 100% with scaling turned off, but it worked when I scaled prining to 105%.)
The twelve triangles block was more fun than I thought it would be. I did the block math and piecing in my own way, but there is a tutorial for the block at Quilters Cache.
I got the idea for the Twist block from Quilter's Cache, but I changed the size and changed the construction slightly. I also wanted to fit more of the text of the center print in the block, so I used some pintucks on the back side of the fabric.
Don't you just love the simplicity of Greek Cross blocks? I used the tutorial by Faith at Fresh Lemons, but I changed the sizing.
I have 31 blocks left in this project. And my biggest issue is fitting all of my very, very favorite prints in. I guess that isn't a bad problem to have.
