Thank you all for the supportive comments on my last post. They mean a lot to me. Many of you gave me advice to keep on sewing for myself. I've been taking that advice to heart with another batch for the Farmer's Wife quilt.
I don't usually like basket blocks, but this one had enough HST's to work for me.
I used a lot of starch and the templates for this one, but I'm really pleased with the yellow, red and gray combination.
This wild geese block was the most difficult one of the batch. I sacrificed 2 points on the geese to keep one point for the star, but I think I'll get over it. (I can't get the color on this photo to turn out at all, so you'll have to trust me that it is better in person.)
Here is yellow, gray and red again. Plus cute birdies!
And here is another extra block for my quilt. It is a friendship block on Quilter's Cache. I changed the sizing to make it a 6.5" block.
Henry is off to bed for the night, and I'm headed to my sewing machine to work on some more. I'm picking up my sashing fabric on Wednesday after Henry's therapy and I now have less than 20 blocks left to make. I have to ride the wave of motivation while I can.
