On Tuesday I had two thoughts at the same time. According to my husband, that usually signifies trouble. But I think the two compliment each other this time.
First thought, which has been running through my head, is that I am NEVER going to finish the Farmers Wife. Every week, I fail to do the two blocks I'm supposed to and I just get further behind. There are too many other things I'd rather be doing. So I've killed her! Dead and buried, only ever to re-surface if I use any of the blocks in other projects (which I may well do) R.I.P Farmers Wife. It's rather liberating - go on try it, you know you want to!
Anyways, the second thought that I thought was that my nephew and partner have around 2 weeks to the birth of their baby, and I haven't even started a quilt for them.
Why not use the now redundant Farmers Wife fabric for a quilt for them. SO I had a look through my books and decided to go for this one
It's from Camille Roskelley's book Simplify. It's a bit pale and wishy washy here, and I don't like the ribbon, but using my Farmers Wife feed sacks, I think it's going to have a bit more zing!
That's 64 blocks made in under 2 days - somewhat of a record for me! I'm not rushing to sew them together though, as I don't have any sashing, backing or binding fabric yet!
Now what can I do next?
