Farmer's Wife Update

When the Farmer's Wife 1930's quilt along started, I didn't have the book yet.  I dipped into the original book and played with some of those blocks.  Now my book is in though, and I am ready to take stock.  So here, on my design wall, are the blocks I have done.  The two on the lower left are of questionable quality, so I will either remake or fix them up a bit.  The others are good though, so now I can start working on the new blocks and figure out which ones I have missed along the way.  Figuring out is about all that I can manage on a Wednesday, but it is better than not having any fabric fun at all.

I'm so not accustomed to seeing solid fabrics only in a quilt. Not very Amish of me to be sure. The Farmer's Wife blocks look great.

Have fun with your book blocks! It is interesting how modern it looks when you are making an 'old' quilt!

They all look great - even the questionable ones.I am glad you were able to find some fun fabric time mid-week!

Love these blocks in solids. Even the ones you have in the lower left. They are cute blocks. Looking forward to seeing your quilt come together.
I've never done a lot with solids, but I'm rethinking that choice now.
