I've been in denial, guys. I haven't been happy with my Farmer's Wife blocks in quite a while. I expected to like the reproduction prints a lot more than I actually did, but I kept plugging on. And on. And on. They haven't grown on me yet, and it's been nine months. I couldn't let myself continue on and make 111+ blocks and end up with a quilt top that I didn't like. So, I've started over.
1. FWQA Block 1 - Attic Windows, 2. FWQA Block 2 - Autumn Tints, 3. FWQA Block 3 - Basket, 4. FWQA Block 4 - Basket Weave, 5. FWQA Block 5 - Bat Wing, 6. FWQA Block 6 - Big Dipper

And now these, I LOVE. I mean, seriously. Red, grey, green, aqua, and white? Little kids running around, trees, squirrels, turtles, and apples? Love. This is already so cheery and wonderful, and I've only done six blocks! The line is Little Apples by Aneela Hoey, and I had a bunch already in my stash, so I didn't even have to buy anything for my reboot. Hopefully you'll see many more blocks now that I'm excited about them again. And don't worry, the old blocks won't go to waste. I'm mulling over some ideas for them!

In A Jiffy by jenniferworthen
Last December my mother-in-law asked for a quilt in pinks and purples for Christmas. She had no preference for the pattern, so I ended up picking In A Jiffy. I also went with solids instead of prints. I have a hard time choosing prints for other people, but solids are loved by all, and I've always wanted to do a solids quilt, so why not kill two birds with one stone!
In A Jiffy::Quilting by jenniferworthen
This is also the first time I quilted two different patterns in one quilt. I did some straight line quilting along the white pieces on the interior, and stippling on the outer border. The light quilting in the middle kept it nice and fluffy.

The back turned out pretty neat (unintentionally), too - a series of diamonds! I am pleased to report that she loves her new quilt!
