STRINGS

Just before Easter, I taught a class based on the quilt in my header.  Each of the ladies had such different fabrics, which made for a great variety of blocks. Here's a little sampling:







It's been a month since I last posted a farmers wife block. Here is #24 (finally)

Not too bad considering how many pieces are in it.

*For whatever reason, my computer won't let me upload anymore photos. I will have to wait for hubby to get home from work I guess.

I hope to be back Friday with a picture of my finished hexagon quilt.......fingers crossed

oooooh those string blocks are gorg! I must learn how to do a farmer's wife quilt one of these days. Don't know that the skills are there yet. For now I'll just drool over your talent. Love the purple fabric too! Sitting on pins and needles waiting to see that hexie quilt :) Have a great day Carla!
