How Can You Not Feel Happy When...

...you are sewing with 30s reproduction fabrics! I am really not a bright fabric type of person but I loved my grandma's quilts and she made them with fabrics like these. What a pick-me-up of color. Anyway...these are the Farmer's Wife Sampler blocks I made today since I had an extra day off work. Above is Evening Star.

Farmer's Daughter. (She must be a star, huh?)

Flock (of what?)

Four Winds. (I think I see a piece out of place).

Homeward Bound.

Maple Leaf. (A pretty wild one.)

Northern Lights. (Not like the ones I've seen. And, quite frankly, looks like a bat in the middle to me.)

Old Windmill. I do like this one.

Peace and Plenty (looks better in person than on camera.)

Feeling Groovy!

I love 30's repro fabric and have made a few quilts with it, including a king-sized one and still have fabric left. Your blocks are all wonderful.
