Farmer's Wife Quilt Along
I skipped through the book for the bottom right block - #73 Rainbow Flowers. I needed an easier one to complete - and, frankly, I couldn't face another triangle today. These sampler blocks are a great way for a self-taught sewer to learn new skills and get some practice. I guess I'll get better at piecing the triangles, but it certainly isn't a natural talent for me. That darn Red Pepper Quilts comes up with the most fabulous quilts using lots of triangles. perfectly pieced - points all matching and everything laying flat. stunning. good to know where I can find 'em 'cause I don't think it's going to be here....
Also finished this week the triangly purple/pink block top left - #13 Buckwheat. love the colors, but I'm probably going to have to come up with a very sedate sashing for this when it's time to put the blocks all together. My plan at this point is to make 2 laptops instead of one bedsize quilt. bit of brightness for the couch, and then there's no fighting between me and the teen over who gets the blanket during movietime.
