Farmer's Wife Friday Inspiration!

Happy Friday! After a wonderful Spring Break vacation in Sedona last week, it's taken some time just to readjust to life again. Laundry, getting back into routine, you get the drill. :) Needless to say I was not able to get to my Farmer's Wife blocks this week. :( I just today was finally able to do a little sewing and that was to get going on my Fab Little Quilt Swap project. It's due next week! 

So this week I thought I would post a few finished Farmer's Wife quilts to keep you inspired! We can do this! I love that not everyone uses the exact pattern. There are different placements, border treatments and sizes.
 I think my favorite finished so far is by Krystyne of Pretty By Hand. It's actually similar to the colors in my quilt and I plan on using white sashing and red polka dot sashing squares. Isn't it gorgeous!? If you haven't visited her blog, GO, it's lovely and so inspiring.
 This version is recently finished by Amanda from Hey, Porkchop! She is one of the originators of the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along that got me started in this whole pursuit! I love how she made it more modern and interspersed grey blocks in between. Beautiful.
 I love the colors in this finish by City House Quilts. She bordered her blocks with white triangles. It gives it such a clean look. And some of the blocks on are point and some aren't which makes the quilt more interesting, just wonderful.
 Lori from Bee in my Bonnet finished her quilt recently. This is another favorite of mine. And I am totally planning on making one of Lori's barns as my quilt label on the back, so cute!


The last quilt I want to share is from Late to Create! I love the Fig Tree fabrics and her double scrapper border treatments. Just amazing! I hope these have inspired you to keep going, I know I want to go make my blocks!
Now it's your chance to share what you've been up to! Have Farmer's Wife blocks to share? Here are the rules:
  • Use the linky tool and link your blog posts or flickr pictures of Farmer's Wife blocks.
  • You must LINK back to this post within your post. You can also grab a Farmer's Wife Friday button (on the right side bar).
  • Have fun reading all the posts! Don't forget, everyone loves a nice comment!
  Finally feeling caught up to our normal schedules and I'm hoping to have a busy sewing weekend so I have more to share next week! Happy Farming!

I haven't started mine yet but these are great inspirations, I didn't realize the importance of choosing a fabric and sticking with it for so many blocks.

Thanks for the inspiration. I haven't done any for two weeks now because of spring break and birthday parties. One more birthday party today and them I'm finished for 6 months. Tip: don't have children with birthdays so close to eachother, I've been going crazy. If I can I will get these done today though!

How terrible am I? I didn't get any Farmer's wife blocks sewn this week. :( I made curtains for my sister's store instead. Oh well, maybe next week. :)

I love looking at pictures of the completed quilts - they're so inspiring to keep going on mine. Thanks for sharing! :)
