Farmer's Wife Quilt Along week 2

Here's the latest batch of blocks for my FWQA! Not a bad week, though a couple I'm not so thrilled with. One of which I'm not posting. Maybe I'll get it fixed by Wednesday?

Block #49: Honeycomb
OK, let's start with the least favorite and move on from there. Not as happy with this block, I may redo it with a different fabric. It just doesn't look as great on point. I think I need to avoid directional prints with some of the blocks that are clearly NOT designed to be set on point.

Block #15: Buzzard's Roost
Liking this one much more! And got to use up some awesome scraps.

Block #17: Cats and Mice.
My favorite! Still learning more about paper piecing, this one was super tricky. Please ignore the multitude of strings from the multiple sessions with the seam ripper. I ended up picking lots of the paper off and reassembling it in a manner that made more sense to me. Phew! And it's nice and straight after all that work, but just blowin' in the wind.

Love em! I'm getting ready to tackle the block with all the itty bitty triangles. I'll need patience.
