In a little bit of spare time I had, I put together another Farmer's Wife block. This one is number 7, Birds in the Air. I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out. I used a bunch of starch to keep the triangles from deforming, and that seemed to do the trick. Still loving the little apples. too.
A few weekends ago I was able to go on another sewing retreat
with some friends
. Since I had all nine swoon blocks finished, my first task was to get the top pieced together!
I'm really in love with how it turned out. A bit soft, a bit bright, and one hundred percent cheerful.
This this is quite monstrous, though, which will make quilting it quite interested. Before I get there, though, I need to piece the back. I've got something special planned for that. You're gonna like it.
