I have the Farmer's Wife book for about a year now and some piecing lessons from Karen. Lovely blocks! Only problem.....each block is only 6"x6"!!!
Now, this is an "easy" block, just squares!
I am not going to make the whole 111 pieces quilt, just a wall hanging. I probably need about 36 blocks.
My first block, the green one, is a bit too small. Might have to do that one again, O my!!! I realized that I am not used to such small pieces, because when I started to make the Basket Weave block I cut the separate pieces twice as big as I should!!! Made the block, though. After it was finished, I thought it would be nice for a tablecloth.
I have enough of the blue and the print, just have to buy some more pink. Big difference, a 6" or a 12" block!!
The wall hanging is supposed to be colourful, as I am a colourful person!
I just don't know yet how. At the moment the colour combinations don't really speak to me. I like the two lilac blocks together. We'll see. In the end things will work out! I guess!!
