3 down, 1 to go...

that would be sew-along flimsies...the 365 and westering women are done and now so is the farmer's wife...turns out not enough blocks were completed for 8 rows so opted for 7 and calling it done. 

100 years from now only the most dogged researcher will know the difference...and now you do too, of course.   but to be honest, am bored with it along with being a bit impressed with myself that i got this many done and they look fairly good.  the instructions called for a border but no border for this, just put into the finish pile for a basting day--after a good iron.  *** happy to say the stars/time warp is nearly ready to put aside as well....just a couple of single rows to get the whole top's on point as well...with setting triangles to come later after the right fabric is chosen.  the pile of blocks was haunting me, so now they will be off the table.   february is off to a good start!


  1. I am so impressed with all your projects - done! I've attempted almost all of them. In January for the 365 - from last year! Hope to get going this year. Congrats!

  2. Very nice, Grace. The color palette makes me think of the red rock formations at the south end of my state and the north end of Arizona--very earthy. I guess farmer's wives have to deal with a lot of earthy things, don't they? : )

    1. started this while without housing so went with colors easy accessible and most in quantity...otherwise would have been brighter...but lots of jo mortons in this

  3. Wise decision. Liberating, too. Now you can work on something else without this one nagging at you.
