Ahhhh… I had a nice bit of afternoon fun with my favorite farmer. I have been feeling completely left out of all the Farmer’s Wife Quilt-along fun lately but between my parents visiting us for two weeks, a week of vacation, the baby learning to crawl & getting two teeth, etc. etc. etc. it just wasn’t happening.
Today, as soon as the little one went down for her afternoon nap, I grabbed my supplies and got to sewing. This is block 6 – Big Dipper. This is the first block I have used foundation paper piecing on and it was nice to not be fussing with templates. I am pretty speedy with my paper piecing too, so that makes things go quickly.
The fabrics came from a scrap bag from someone else, so I’m not sure what they are. I’d guess the purple is shot cotton, not sure on the grey.
Now if I can get some bee blocks caught up I can have some more fun with the farmer!
