Farmer's Wife Friday, TGIF!

Welcome to Farmer's Wife Friday!  It's been a full week and it's so nice to get to the weekend! This week included the last day of school festivities for my high school-er and my pre-school-er, a new job at my church that I'm transitioning through, a graduation party at my house for my bestie's son, starting 5K training with my son and I'm still getting my two charter school girls off to school everyday. Like I said, glad the weekend has arrived!
 Because of the craziness of my week, I only finished one block. I thought it would be fun to do a patchwork on this one. I have liked when I have done that in the past. I also wanted to use two colors together that I hadn't before, blue and green! The green fabrics were great for this, but I realized that almost all of the blue fabrics have red in them! So it ended up being a three color block and a bit jumbled. But it is predominately cool so I'm okay with it.
Another reason I only got one block done is because of this little culprit. The dreaded triangle #13.  This block had a total of 48 of these triangles! 48! It took me a bit longer than I thought it would just to cut this block out, so be warned! When I see this block listed, I know it's going to be a long night. :)
Were you working on a more laborious block this week? I'd love to hear about it! Share your Farmer's Wife posts here. The rules are:
1. Link up any post or picture from the past week that features your Farmer's Wife quilt progress.
2. 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! 

Here's to a fabulous weekend!

What a great job you did of all those wee triangles! I am hoping to sew together what I have done so far because we are having a showing of all the quilts we did as a bit of a quilt along here in Kamloops
