Sewing like crazy.

 After seeing so many beautiful Farmers wife quilts on the internet I decided to make my own version. I have made a sampler quilt using 8 inch blocks. Here are a few of my favourites. I love the yellow and red with a splash of green.
 I do love this blue block to, its called Nautilus.
 This block has lots of 1 1/2 inch squares, it took ages to put together and its so pretty.
 I have made 49 blocks, I think it would make a good size lap quilt.
 Every time I look at it I think I want to add another row. I love going through my book and picking out different blocks.  I might just have to make a few more.
 A little bit of floral inspiration from my garden. I love taking photos with my new camera.  Can't you tell. lol.
Have a wonderful Sunday.

I agree with Christine! Your blocks look amazing! What a good idea! What book are you using? What kind of camera? I need a new one but want a Canon Rebel and can't afford it! Now I want to start another Farmers Wife after seeing your blocks....sigh...

Cheery wave!

Fabulous work on your sampler blocks! It must be hard to choose when to stop and finish the quilt. The colours are wonderful too. Glad you're having fun with the new camera - your marigolds are pretty!

How I love your beautiful summerflowers, we had snow again today! thought that Spring was coming a very little bit, but no, it's very cold.
You joined the farmer's wife club!! I made 40 blocks already in green and white. Your blocks are wonderful. I have bought a charmpack from Fig tree this weekend and it looks a bit like that.
