Farmer's Wife Quilt Along week 5

Only one new block this week, what with family fun stuff and getting my working-mama groove back, there hasn't been much time.

I used more happy Japanese scraps, this bit of trees printed in brown and white (you can juuuust barely make out the white trees) a scrap of black Kona, and some of a vintage burgundy print from my mom's old fabric stash. They go together perfectly! I also strip-pieced the corner blocks instead of making them as 4-patch blocks like the book suggests. It just seemed easier to me.

And since scanning the blocks is working out so well, here are a couple from the first week...
Love this one!
And this one, too!

I'm loving watching you make these. I love your fabric choices - so uniquely Gillian.
