Party in the sewing room!

111 blocks done! I have conquered all of the blocks in The Farmer’s Wife Sampler! And I don’t have any left to remake either! I finished those yesterday as well.

#008 Bouquet#008 Bouquet

An extremely easy paper-piecing block. I was just avoiding it because, as I’ve said, I’m so over basket blocks.

#011 Broken Dishes#011 Broken Dishes

A re-make, because when I looked over the photos of these block in my Flickr group, I just hated the original attempt when compared with the rest of the blocks.

Re-make number two. Thankfully all the blocks I decided to remake were super simple. I pulled some of the older stuff from the stash. Lots of prints are going to be headed to the scrap bins after this project. I think my next project will be to sort my scraps by color.

#021 Contrary Wife#021 Contrary Wife

Re-make number three. Not  sure what’s so contrary about this block. It went together quickly and easily.

#043 Garden Path#043 Garden Path

I need to block this block, so it lays correctly. The colors make me think of sherbet.

#022 Corn and Beans#022 Corn and Beans

The last block I needed from the book! Woo!!! Paper-pieced, of course.

Now, I just need to sit down and make nine more blocks, to get me to the 121 I need for the full top. I’m debating getting out of bed to pick some relatively easy ones and get them done before I have to go work today.
