Farmer’s Wife 1930’s – Week 2 & 3

by Julie Hirt

Farmers Wife  week 2 and 3

Back from vacation and caught up on my blocks.

Farmers Wife Belle 627handworks

The Belle was a little tricky with the Y seams, but I’m satisfied with it and any weirdness will quilt out. Right?

Farmers Wife Caroline 627handworks

Ugh. Puckery, bulky Caroline. So many little points for a 6″ block with the Caroline. Again – hoping it will quilt out.

Farmers Wife Betty 627handworks

The Betty may be my favorite.  One, I love the name and two, aqua and red will always be a favorite color combination.

Farmers Wife Coral 627handworks

I modified my Coral block.  Since these will be on point I didn’t like the little square off center (see below) in the original pattern.

I wonder if I’ll need to refer to the first book for a few of my blocks. I don’t believe there are any repeating patterns between the books and hoping some more traditional blocks are in the first book.

Farmers Wife Coral Modified 2

Modified foundation paper piecing. Easier than drawing up an entire block.

Farmes Wife Week 2 and 3

These are the colors I pulled for week 2 and 3.

I have quite a few projects I need to work on like a baby quilt, a Fat Quarter Shop project, quilting my Gypsy Wife and Orphan Block quilts… plus the fun things I end up making that distract me. Going to be a busy fall!

  1. I love your modification for Coral! …still wishing a little bit that I had made flying geese too on the sides, but not enough to redo, I suppose. :-) wondering why the pattern didn’t use flying geese anyhow! Oh well, it’s a great deal of fun and I love seeing and reading everyone’s interpretations…thank you!! :-)

  2. I love that you are using solids!

  3. I love the solid designs of your blocks! Great color and a different look!

  4. I’m loving these in solids so much. Your to-do list sounds a little like mine (crazy busy) – hope you get some uninterrupted sewing time! <3

  5. The solids look awesome. How are you choosing colours for each block?
