Farmer's Wife Squeal

Excuse me while I let out a little squeal!
With these last 5 Farmer's Wife blocks completed, I'm now at my goal of 24 and have caught up with the group.

This means I can relax a little and only need to add 2 a week.
I can move onto my other projects that are on the to-do list.
The tricky problem is, I've become addicted and keep thinking about the next block.
These are kind of like a jig saw puzzle.
"I promise, I will only do one more, and then put them away".....and next thing you know, you are still being A Farmer's Wife an hour later.

#72 Railroad


#10 Bowtie


#12 Broken Sugar Bowl

*don't you love these names? I wonder how this title was created?


#81 Snowball

All 24 blocks are now up on my design wall and playing nicely together.

I had to check and see how far I was as I hadn't touched it in awhile - I have 16 done - you have passed me up and flying along. I will get back to mine. I have to get a couple of the blocks prepped so I have some ready for Friday's group so I will have something to work on there.

I have loved seeing all of the Farmer's Wife blocks - and I was so tempted to jump on the quilt-wagon, but just couldn't justify adding ONE more project to my huge pile...now I'm sorry I didn't! Love your blocks! Can't wait to see it all put together! xo, Nan
