I have been enjoying the last couple days making my Farmer's Wife block and the two Dear Jane blocks.
As much as I have enjoyed making blocks for Christmas quilts, Senior Quilts finished off and a surprise quilt I shall soon post about, its good to be making something for myself again.
So much enjoyment I have decided (if nothing goes wrong) that this week is going to be Farmer's Wife and Dear Jane week.
I think we're having Cooper again tomorrow as well as our usual Thursday, so I'll work on getting templates printed off, traced on fabric and cut out, ready to sew later on in the week.
At night I'll continue with the Dear Jane blocks.

Today's block took me 2.5 hours, including a lunch break while the midday movie was on. So I'd say at a guess 2 hours, from tracing the foundation templates onto some non-ironing interfacing to sewing on the last piece of fabric.
And guess what? The fabrics are all correctly placed in this block...lol.
I love this block and think the fabric suits it well.
I love foundation piecing and as I hadn't done any blocks for a while, I didn't know how much I love this style of quilting.
