Piece and Plenty

It's Farmer's Wife time! I'm bored of titles that say "Farmer's Wife" so I'm going for the name of one of the blocks this week!

Since the start of the year I've been practicing my rotary cutting and piecing, and this week I was comfortable to move away from foundation piecing (which I've used for the first 63 blocks) and try measuring and accurate piecing! I started of with some half-square-triangle blocks.

Block #38: Four Winds. I think this block is the block with the most pieces in the whole Farmer's Wife quilt.

And block #64 Peace and Plenty (fewer pieces in this block). I picked a brown batik. I'm not 100% sure I like it, but it's pretty well pieced and I have used it in anotherblock. Maybe once the blocks are all together it'll be fine.

Very pretty! I really liked that Peace and Plenty block right away when I saw it and was surprised that you said you weren't sure about liking it. I think it looks sharp!
