Farmer's Wife Quilt Along Week 17

Red, White & Pink

#54 - Kitchen Woodbox

I'm trying very hard to resist the urge to put a fussy cut flower in the middle of every "square-in-the-middle" block.  But right now I'm kinda thinking this one might need a little "su'mm su'mm". 

(That was my totally lame attempt at saying "something something" gangsta style.  When am I going to learn that I should just stick to my middle-aged haus frau vocabulary?  Hmmmm ... NEVER!  Being silly is too much fun. 

My husband says I'm the funniest person I know.  Well, I wouldn't go THAT far.  There are plenty of people who are WAY funnier than me.  But I do make myself laugh. :)

#17 - Cats & Mice

Kinda white.  But I like it.

I am a newbie to your blog and I am finding it delightful and charming and inspirational! What fabric line are you using in your Farmers Wife blocks?
Thank you for sharing!

Oops... Just read your FWQAL from the start and saw you were using Flower Sugar. Your blocks are stunning... Do you starch your fabric before cutting?

Lovin the RED!!!! and the pink and the white, of course! But the RED is so gorgeous! Try sayin that in "gangsta" LOL
How does your woodbox block look next to all the others? That little white space may be just perfect!

I've been trying to resist the FWQA and....I think that just might be futile when I see such pretty blocks like yours!

I 've read your blog before & really enjoy your sense of humor. My Mother used to always say that "she really tickled herself sometimes". She had a quirky sense of humor, too that fortunately my sisters & I inherited.

Beautiful, as always. No better combination would be possible than Camille and Kristyne. You both do such awesome work and are both so inspiring.

Blessings to you.

I LOVE the look of your FW blocks! Are you using a certain line of fabric or are you just that good at putting things together? They are absolutely too lovely and sooo perfect! I am new to reading your blog and am enjoying it so much! Thanks for writing!

Found your blog via Camille's site. Beautiful and funny. But, when your husband says you are funny does he mean 'funny ha ha" or "funny strange'? My husband means the latter for me.

September 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSandy Muir

your sewing is very neat and your pictures are always so sharp and well styled. le sigh Can you knit too?
