100 FW Blocks done!

I have now completed 100 FW blocks. Only 11 more to go for a queen-size quilt.
Here are a couple of my new favorities:
This one is Indian Plume. I am pretty proud of myself for getting all of the points on these 1" finished HSTs to match up. Whew.
This one is Railroad. Those little 4-patch squares finish at 3/4".

Now, the last 11. I have avoided some of the blocks in the book because I either don't like them or don't want to figure out the math and angles. I just might resort to using templates on the last few. I don't like templates. I much prefer to use the rotary cutter to cut strips and pieces. Oh well. I will get this thing done and off my WIP list.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Oh my that is so pretty and you are so close to being done. I don't like templates either, but sometimes we have to bite the bullet.

  2. I love these farmers wife quilts! Beautiful! Where do you get the patterns?

  3. Karen - I don't remember if you have EQ or not - but if you do - don't forget that you can print out a Foundation Paper Piecing pattern for any EQ block - in any size. I did that with several of my Left-Handed Quilter Sampler Quilt blocks. They are all EQ public domain blocks except for a few from KatieM and a couple from Quilt-Pro. And FPP is a LOT easier than trying to figure out the math - ;))
