Farmer's Wife Quilt Along: Sunday Update from the Farm

FWQAL Week #2


#1 Attic Windows
Would you believe that I traced my templates backwards?  I hadn't even realized it was possible.  Just day dreaming along tracing and cutting.  Then when I went to piece the block together, my argyle templates were the reverse of the diagram.  Grrr.  I only had one charm of that fabric and it was all cut up.  So I just flipped things around a bit.  I do like the block!  It's just backwards from everyone else's.  No one will notice when I put the whole quilt together.

#2 Autumn Tints
Easy peasy.  Good thing after the mishap above.  The blue sea print is from the Japanese Imports Swap.

  1. I love your fun Remix Attic Windows block - those fabrics just make me smile :) And I can definitely believe you traced the patterns backwards - I've almost done that at least three times now!!! Lovely blocks, AM :)

  2. That sounds exactly like something I would do! Recently I cut out the fabric for 12 blocks that were EXACTLY THE SAME. I get to block number 11 and miscut one piece of fabric. Huh? I don't get myself sometimes. But you're right, nobody will notice it in the grand scheme of things! Very cute blocks!

  3. I've just started my "Farmer's Wife Quilt." I've been printing the templates and cutting the fabric so you're just a couple of blocks ahead of me. I'll start sewing this afternoon. I've often made a block backwards. I think it adds individuality to a quilt so "you go, girl!"

  4. I love both blocks, but the first is definitely my favorite! You do such a great job combining colors and prints.

  5. I traced the same template backwards also :0) But I set it aside hoping to use it in a different block.

  6. They both look great!! I just love the fabrics in the attic windows block...I wouldn't have known it was backwards if you hadnt said anything, and I made that block!!
