However, the extra time at home turned out to be a great time for me to catch up on making two more Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt blocks!

Block # 81:
I whipped out the first one, "lickety split!" It was even appropriately name #81 Snowball (variation): I was on a roll...

I pulled off the foundation paper backing, as I made it by the paper pieced pattern, and while I was ironing it, I realized that something was not quite right with my Snowball block....

I realized that I had mixed up two of my Sew Alongs... I made this Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt pattern with the fabrics from my other sew along, The Patchique Quilt Project !

** Note to self: keep "mistake" blocks for a "mistake pillow or wallhanging" (hopefully there won't be enough "mistake" blocks to make a queen size quilt! )
I double checked that I had the right fabrics, when I started sewing the pieces together on this block!

This block was a simple and fun block to make , using a paper pieced pattern.
Here's my progress on the completed blocks so far:
