I kid, I kid. Although one of the blocks this week is named just that, Farmers Daughter. This week is actually both this week and lasts weeks Farmers Wife blocks combined, and include a few highs, and a few lows.
Block #31 Evening Star
This is one of my favorites so far. I picked up some of this adorable Riley Blake tree print on my last trip to my favorite LQS, and thought this block would be perfect for a little fussy cutting action. I added some Oh My! by Sanae for Moda and this green canvas print.
Block #32 Farmers Daughter
Hmmm, no matter how I look at this I most certainly don't see any resemblance to a farmer, or his daughter, but regardless I like it anyways. I used some of this pretty Kaffe Fasset print and paired it with some pink and orange I had lying around in my stash.
Block #33 Farmers Puzzle
I am really digging this block, but I beg you, please, pretty please don't look too closely at those ragged edges. I'm not exactly sure what went on here, everything was piecing together nicely, until I pieced in those longer strips, and it just wasnt matching up for some reason. I fudged it a bit, and figure that there will be enough of these teeny tiny blocks, no one will notice my Farmers Puzzle that has the triangle points slightly chopped off. And if they do, I don't really care :-)
Block #34 Flock
This block is just eh to me. Don't love it, don't hate it. I've come to the conclusion that its all about fabric choices with these blocks. I love each of these fabrics, but together? Not so much. The green is a Sandi Henderson print and the grey is Sunkissed by Sweetwater for Moda.
These blocks are slowly taking up my entire design wall, and I'm not sure how I'll display them once they grow larger than my wall...perhaps I'll just decorate my sewing room walls with Farmers Wife blocks
