FWQA Block 11 - Broken Dishes by jenniferworthen
I've got a fun one for you today - Farmer's Wife block 11, Broken Dishes. My first paper pieced block for Farmer's Wife! It turns out that I really enjoy paper piecing these blocks. Look at how perfect those triangles turned out! The sad part is that I didn't do the scaling right when I printed it, so it's not the right size. So I'll save it for something else (part of the backing? a pillow?), and redo this block with the correct size.
FWQA Block 10 - Bowtie by jenniferworthen
Here's my next Farmer's Wife block, Bowtie. What's fun about this one is that either color, red or white, could actually be the bowtie.
FWQA Block 9 - Box by jenniferworthen
Another Farmer's Wife block from the reboot, this time, Box. I used starch, but somehow I still ended up with lumps. (They look worse in person than on camera.) I'm going to re-do this one with the same fabrics but with paper piecing, so hopefully that will eliminate any lumps from forming!
FWQA Block 8 - Bouquet by jenniferworthen
Here's my eighth Farmer's Wife block in my reboot, Bouquet. I especially love the little turtle. And the snail!
ET Phone Home Block 1 by jenniferworthen
July's task for my circle in do. Good Stitches was to make two ET Phone Home blocks using deep reds, bright icy blues, and grey for the background. This was my first real block using paper piecing, and it turns out it's much easier than it looks!

I'm pretty happy with how my blocks turned out. It took a lot of time, but the end result is pretty stunning!
