Down and Dirty on the Farm
From the looks of things I haven't worked on this UFO since December 2014 when I started it and made 8 blocks and rehearsed centers. At that time I called it Garden Party but the fabrics I have been throwing in the box seem to depict more than just gardening so now I think I'll all it Down and Dirty on the Farm. I was thinking of calling it Farmer in the Dell but I don't have any nurse or cheese fabrics.
But I digress...I made about 20 or so more blocks yesterday; four of which make up a bigger block. I still have a lot more blocks to make. I think I need 68 for the quilt in the book (Adding Layers by Kathy Doughty - quilt named House Party) but mine will probably be larger. And I'm still rehearsing centers for those bigger blocks. I had some big veggie fabric in the project box I might use for some centers.
And I also have some large floral fabrics that might be nice for some centers.
I have fun working with colorful and fun novelties especially when it's dreary outside. Normally I get bored with a block after I cut and make a couple. But these are fun. And I figured out an easier way to cut pieces for the blocks (not cutting 4 1/8 piece in quarters for side pieces but using EZ angle ruler to cut from 2.5 inch pieces the same as the rest of the block) so that process has sped up a little.
So the block making went on and on...
...and on and on...
...and on. I'm ready to sew more blocks but am tired of them for now. On to the next project/UFO. I'll get back to this one later...hopefully before two years have passed.
