From the farm - blocks 42 - 44

I continue to stay on schedule with 3 blocks per week in my Farmer's Wife.  Paper piecing is working out well.

#42 - Fruit Basket


#43 - Garden Path - I had a lot of trouble with this block as you might be able to tell from the picture.  It doesn't look like it will square up all that well.  


#44 - Gentlemen's Fancy - I had fun making this one.  The red isn't as intense in real life as it is in the photo.






Happy Stitching!

Friends from the farm - blocks 38-41

A lot of friendly blocks this week


#39 - Friendship


#40 - Friendship block



#41 - Friendship star.  This blue is probably my favorite of all the fabrics and I've so very, very little left.  (sigh)


Here are all the blocks so far in two group photos.





Happy Stitching!

A fun use of a mini charm pack

I adapted my Pretty Trash bag pattern used a mini charm pack of Miss Kate.



I had a great aqua print in my stash for the inside.



The best part of these bags is how to keep them pretty.  Line them with a plastic gallon bag - the kind with the twist ties.  Works like a charm!

 You can find the pattern for this Pretty Trash bag at Craftsy - my first pattern!


Happy Stitching!

Red and White mini

SewCalGal sponsored a Red / White quilt challenge.  I did a cute little mini to hang in my front hallway in December.


It is fun to do the straight line quilting - it gives it so much texture.

I'll be linking up here.




Happy Stitching!
