Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along – Blocks Among the Tomatoes

The Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along is up to week 19. This project is inspired by the Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along Group on Flickr.  The challenge is to make 2 blocks a week from The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt book (by Laurie Aaron Hird).  Over the last couple of weeks I’ve made 4 blocks but haven’t had time to share pictures.

As a good farmer’s wife (well, gardener’s wife), I had to also share pictures of our fall tomato plants:

Here are blocks 35 and 37:

And blocks 36 and 38:

It won’t be long and we will have some fresh garden tomatoes!

Here are some closer views of each block:

FW 35 - Flower Basket

All four of these blocks today are paper pieced using the foundation patterns that can be found on the Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt Yahoo Group site.  The Flower Basket has a machine appliqued handle.

FW 36 - Flower Path

Flower Path was a real bear!  It doesn’t meet in the center as well as I’d like.  But I do like the brown and white print and the green “path”.

FW 37 - Flower Pot

Flower Pot is another challenging block with some set-in seams.  I used some new Aunt Grace fabric I picked up at the quilt show last week.

FW 38 - Four Winds

Four Winds is my favorite this week.  I love all the pinwheels within pinwheels and used some pretty blue fabrics to represent the sky.  Perhaps some clouds in the sky might look like white dogs? 🙂

Despite some challenges this week, the Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along is zipping along.  I can’t believe I have 38 cute little blocks completed already!
