Farmer's Wife Quilt Along Progress

I managed to complete 4 more quilt blocks for the Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along. Here are a few more fabrics I picked up while on vacation to add to my stash for the quilt. I am happy to be going at my own pace. Here are the four blocks.

#3 Basket Block
This is probably my least favorite block to make so far. The handle kind of puckered a little. I think my tension was too tight, and I should have spaced my stitches more.

#4 Basket Weave
I like how this one turned out although it is probably my brightest block so far. I will need to make sure to incorporate a few more bright blocks to kind of even it out for the big picture.

#5 Bat Wing

#6 Big Dipper
I like this one a lot. After doing this block I can see making a pinwheel quilt in the future.

Overall I am doing great with this sampler quilt and have not had any major problems or mishaps. Here are a few of the blocks #1-6 by other members of the group that caught my eye. There are currently 675 members in the group.

Wow- those are beautiful fabrics and I think it will look really cool after it is all finished. You are too crafty...I still have projects that are pinned together from when I was pregnant with #1. I feel like if I start a project these days, it is going to take me years to finish!!

Looks like you're doing a great job! FW is one I have thus far avoided, but I can tell I will have to do it before it's all over with.
