Farmer's Wife Friday

Hi! I'm back with some Farmer's Wife Sampler blocks... FINALLY!!! With the holidays fast approaching, the gal getting more active, and work, I've been neglecting this project.

block #31: Evening Star
A bit of Appleville in the center, some Denyse Schmidt dots for the points, and some unknown scraps of navy as the background. I love how it reads from a distance! The dots make it *glow* when you pin it up across the room.

block 69: Practical orchard
What's better than some Apple Dots? Not much for this block. Loving these two together!

block 39: Friendship
Well, then there's this block... How could I resist using these fun charm squares from Aneela Hooey's Little Apples line??? I love how the kids appear to be going around the center. The white is some scrap Kona cotton.

block 41: Friendship Star
And speaking of friendship, here's what I came up this one. Not quite convinced there's enough contrast, but we will leave it up on the board to ponder. It may be a redo. Fabrics are more Denyse Schmidt as the background and some fun scraps of some girls playing (Moda? Maybe Michael Miller?).

block #6: Big Dipper
I love using up favorite scraps as in this case. Loving the large scale brown pattern against the semi regular strips of the Japanese mushrooms print.

block 85: Square Dance
And then there's this one. My FAAAVORITE from this batch! So perfect! I used a bit of this awesome Japanese girl and bear apple picking print as the center and triangles, some scrap red vintage dots, then a bit of Aneela Hooey's Apples print for the corners. I love the repeating of the apples theme!

Hope you enjoy your weekend of Turkey sandwiches, turkey pot pie, turkey soup, turkey hash, turkey salad... you get the drift.

G - seriously - these are really, really perfect. Your strong sense of color is evident in these. Good stuff.
