Farmer's Wife Friday & Linky Party!

We were going to hit the road for President's Day weekend, but it turned out the girls did not have Friday off of school (even though my boy did, why does that happen?)! So we stuck around town.

But I wasn't too broken up about it, it actually makes for a relaxing time at home and I got some sewing time! Even though I have a few WIPs that I should've been working on I was in the mood to work on Farmer's Wife Blocks. So I went for it!
I ended up with 10 blocks! I think that's the most I've ever done in one "session". It feels like such an accomplishment. The best part about it is that I've reached the halfway mark! I'll choose to look at that with a glass half full mentality instead of how many more blocks it means I need to make. :)

I tlhink my favorite of the bunch is #51 and then #57. I just like the way the fabrics turned out to look. Sometimes the fabrics you pick look good "on paper" but when the block comes together it just doesn't look right. I like the way those two look. Number 59 below is also pretty cool.

What can I say these little blocks just make me happy! I love moving forward and I'm determined to finish this quilt this year! Is anyone else out there still working on theirs?

I would love to see your progress! I'm going to start a linky group so we can keep each other motivated!
 Here's how it works:

  • Link up your blog post about your progress on your Farmer's Wife Blocks.
  • Link back to my blog in your post. You can use this button in your post or add it to your sidebar. 
  • Let everyone know come here and add their links so we can see each other's progress!

 Here is the button, just copy the code on my sidebar and add it to your blog!

Let finish this amazing quilt together! I can't wait to see how yours is coming along!

Hi Ellie. I am so glad I saw this! I will shoot for next Friday ; ) I need to dig mine out as I am stalled at block 28 I think.
I need some motivation too

I just started my FWS this month (Feb 2013) and I've gotten 11 or 12 blocks done so far. I love the blocks, I don't think I've seen a day and night block that I haven't is so awesome. I don't have a blog to link to, but I will follow along on yours. Patty in NV

Greetings! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a theme
or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

If you have any suggestions, please share. Thank

I don't have the book, but I've heard that it doesn't have instructions for all the blocks? Is that true? Because then how does everyone seem to know how to make them?! lol. I'm confused. :)
