Progress on my Farmers Wife quilt

Now that I pulled out all those blocks and set them on my wall I've been a lot more motivated to finish this quilt. I've been mulling over layout trying to decide between straight set or on point when found a perfect solution, a layout with both!
Looks something like this
My lighting wasn't very good but you get the idea. This way the blocks that look best on point can go on point and the ones that look better straight can set straight! My layout would be 9 X11 blocks which needs 99 blocks. I would need to make 19 more blocks.
 I'm trying to decide on which fabric for the background. These are 2 possibilities, but it always fun to go shopping in search of the perfect fabric.
Guess I'd better get sewing!


  1. Your blocks look great! I can't believe how many you've made. Love the setting compromise you found - it will be really nice when it's all sewn together.

  2. Wow, only 19 blocks left, how excited you must be to get that put together! I do love that setting, wonderful

  3. Yes! I like both on point and straight--VERY nice!

  4. Looking good! I think I have about 70 blocks done myself but I have not put them up on the wall for a long time!

  5. Inspiring...I am about to start my FWQ and you've done a wonderful job so far! I like the compromise...Makes each block pop a bit more :)

  6. I like the combination of on-point and straight... I hadn't thought about that before. They're definitely looking great together!
