I know it's now Saturday, but I did my Week 21 blocks yesterday! For the first time I'm linking up with Friday Night Sew In:If it's quiet at work, I leave at 3.30 on a Friday - it's only an extra half hour, but it feels like a much longer evening when I do. So I sat down at my machine and did my Farmers Wife Blocks for Week 21! I am still loving this quilt along and seeing what everyone else is doing - check out the Flickr Group. I think it's the variety that keeps it so interesting. So this week, knowing I had a bit of extra time (the magical half an hour) I made a conscious decision to do two harder blocks, so I picked out Wild Geese and Wood Lily. In the end I did Wild Geese and then got distracted by Whirlwind, so did that instead of Wood Lily - I'll put that aside for next week, but I have already chosen the fabrics for it.
So here is #104 Wild Geese: I simplified the background colours to all black then chose a fairly sickly but lovely green and pink combo. I really like this block - it's amazing how changing the colours slightly totally changes the pattern you can see in the block.
And here is my week's distraction piece #103 Whirlwind. The huge amount of one fabric meant I could really show off one of the larger print batiks that I'm using in the quilt.Two totally different colour schemes but I'm sure they'll go together just fine.
I now have two days of stitching ahead, so check back on Sunday evening for an update.
PS. we are just being too cute at the moment:
