W.I.P. Wednesday ~ Farmer's Wife update

The farm is growing....


27 blocks finished and still enjoying myself immensely.  I've got a bit of a system now where I choose fabrics for four blocks at a time, then cut and sew.  Feels more manageable that way.  Some days I can actually sew four, and other days, like today, even though I had a lot of sewing time I only managed two blocks because they each had a lot of pieces.  New record today, block #27 (not pictured yet) had FIFTY-ONE pieces.  An accomplishment in itself.  ;)

Wow ... and here I was complaining because one of my blocks had 30 seams. I can't imagine 51 pieces! I don't know what's more impressive, you're awesome quilt or your positive attitude! I can tell you love what you do. :)

51 pieces in one block! Lots of colour and variety in this quilt.

I cannot tell you how much I adore this Heather - I'm glad you're having fun, because I'm loving watching it grow. Really, really beautiful.

You should be awarded a record for speed!

wow! This is really something special Heather!

Your farm is looking so awesome Heather!! And now i think i need to start one :) Must resist!!!
I love how you're breaking it into smaller portions. I did the same with my gypsy wife. I'd pull fabrics and cut the night before while watching tv with the mr. Then stitch them up the next day. It may not have been faster, but it sure felt like it was! Can't wait to see more!

Wow - you're making hay! I thought this was going to be a "long-term, slow-down" project. At this rate, you'll be quilting it by Father's Day. ;)

Beautiful work. Great choices.

Patti said...

Wow, Heather! You must be so pleased with the progress you are making on this beauty. Fantastic choice the Chicopee was!

Kate said...

I think I've been overwhelmed to even start because of how to select fabrics from my various bundles. Looove the idea of working on a few blocks in a scheme at once! Brilliant!
