Making hay: Farmer's Wife quilt-a-long, episode 3

I know for a fact that there will be many weeks in the coming months when I cannot accomplish much towards long-term sewing projects like the Farmer's Wife sampler quilt...so I am making hay while the sun shines! 

I just made up two more little blocks while listening to CBC (where I was so sad to hear that Canada Post workers have been locked out -- sad for them as a union, yes, but also sad for myself because I expected my Farmer's Wife book in the mail today.  That sounds very selfish, I know...but boo hoo).

Here is my interpretation of block #8, "Bouquet":



And block #51, "Hovering Birds":


Two morning "makes"; better than two cups of tea for starting this pretty spring day!

I really love your blocks, and your fabrics are just wonderful. Love the dots.

Bummer about the post, but it looks like you are hanging in there. Your blocks look great. I've been too imtimidated to start the bouquet. Sooner or later I'll have to give it a try.

I love your blog title of making hay. A girl has to do what she can when the sun is shinning.

Thanks so much for all the kind comments! And Charity, you should give "Bouquet" a try: I made it using templates, and it went very smoothly.

And -- hooray! -- my book did arrive (by UPS) the very next day.

Love these! Just started my first block last night and can't believe how teeny, tiny the pieces are! Hope I can sew them OK. These are just adorable and you are totally inspiring me.

Thanks for the comments, Leanne and Bailey!! I have found so much inspiration from all the work shared online...it's really touching to know that something I have posted might inspire someone else. Thank you.
