Farmer's Wife QAL week 18

I'm happy to say that I managed to make two more blocks for the FWQAL -- they're both easy, quick blocks (just mountains of 2" HSTs/half-square triangles), but I am still delighted to have been able to keep this project rolling forward.  These new blocks bring my total to 36, so I'm right on target.

First up: block 62, Old Windwill, using my beloved red dots (of unknown provenance), Lecien basic dots, the blue floral print from Peas & Carrots (or maybe Look & Learn?  either way, they're made by American Jane for Moda), and introducing to the mix a blue burlap print (left over from a recent make, "Blue Skies and Sunshine").



Next I made block 64, Peace & Plenty, using Nicey Jane stripes (Welcome Road; I have squeezed a lot of mileage out of that yard of fabric!) and a blue-and-green retro print that has been in my stash for well over a year and is now missing its selvedge, so I can't say for sure where it came from.  I'm not incredibly attuned to the branding of these fabrics -- I'm trying my best to give info for the sake of interested readers!!

Let's just say, here's "Peace & Plenty" using a couple of old favourites in blue and green.


 I'll be back soon with a sneak peek at a project for my sweet son...and maybe a few photos from the old albums too. For now, I wish you all peace and plenty!
