Farmer's Wife QAL, week 12

This week's sanity sewing: two blocks this week for the FWQAL, both paper (foundation) pieced. 

First, here is block 66, Periwinkle.


Next up, block 82, Spider Legs. 


I found these slow-going, for some reason; I don't think they were particularly challenging, but I found the paper piecing tedious this time around. 


I think I'll return to playing with the good, old-fashioned templates next week, accuracy be damned!

In other stitchy news chez moi: my Loulouthi hexies are looking pretty lovely...but I'm going to hold out on that one until my 2" diamonds arrive and I'm able to fill in some gaps.

I'm getting to close to finishing the Garden Fence quilt top.  It certainly brightens up our otherwise dingy back porch!


Must run...but I hope everyone finds a little brightness and beauty today!

I love the periwinkle block - the colours/fabrics are lovely! (Not that the spider's legs block isn't nice, it is, I just really like the other one...I'll stop digging now!) Garden fence is going to be a wonderful quilt - may have to make one myself!

Thank you so much! I think it's fine to play favourites with the FW blocks -- I just really appreciate the feedback :)

Lovely FW blocks - I'm so behind with that it's fallen by the wayside for the moment but I will return to it!
