Farmer's Wife Blocks

Loving these Farmer's Wife Sampler Blocks

I've  just completed two more Farmer's Wife Sampler Blocks....
Making blocks from the book...
in no hurry

Block # 19 :  Checkerboard -

FWSQ block #19   Checkerboard       Susie's Sunroom

I love how this block turned out!!   I really enjoy piecing them by the foundation paper pieced method! 

Block # 20:  Churn Dash -

FWSQ block #20  Churn Dash     Susie's Sunroom

These have been my favorite blocks so far.   And this was the first time I made a Churn Dash block.... so I feel like I have passed a little "classic quilting" landmark , having finally made a churn dash.  I am using various DS Quilts fabrics  (Denyse Schmidt fabrics predominantly), with some other stash fabrics.  The blue is Quilter's Linen (Robert Kaufman.)  I just LOVE any color of the Quilter's Linen!

#19 Checkerboard on top of pile of FWSQ blocks                         Susie's Sunroom

If you want to see other FWSQ blocks,  hop on over to my Flickr group to see what we are all making!  I may be going at a snail's pace, but it is a lot of fun so far! 

Yay, Churn Dash!!
Is anybody else making any big project , with a lot of pieces, but you don't have a  deadline to finish it?                    Enjoy the journey!
I'm off to my sewing room!


  1. Oh, I have to agree...these are my favorite blocks yet! I love the color and fabric combos and would love to see an entire project made from just those few choices - they look fabulous! Perfect piecing, too!

  2. GREAT blocks, Susie! I love your color choices. Just perfect! They just put a big smile on my face!! :)

  3. Nice blocks Susie especially that Checkerboard. Well done.

  4. Gorgeous blocks!!! The pile is getting bigger!
