one hundred and eleven blocks completed, plus a few extra as mug rugs, minis and presents. But I still can't get enough. I think I'm addicted....
Today I made eleven more Farmer's Wife blocks. Yesterday Sebastian was born, so he needs a quilt. Mum and Dad chose a green colour scheme for him, so I'm making a baby quilt of about 35 blocks from the Farmer's Wife book in all different green fabrics with bleached white kona as the background fabric - it's a bit softer than white white, but not as creamy as Kona snow. Unfortunately the beautiful British summer weather means that outdoor photographs are impossible (it is a bank holiday weekend so inevitably it is lashing it down with rain), so some of the colours aren't as beautiful as in reality, but here are the blocks so far:

In the interest of full disclosure, my full batik Farmer's Wife is sitting on the back of the armchair and in boxes while I get over the fact that I really don't enjoy sashing. Though this has spurred me on. Maybe.
