I am participating in the Bee in my Bonnet Row Along. You can read about it here. Anything Lori does is just too good to pass up!
She told us to choose 7 colors, about 9 prints in each color. I went to my stash and began pulling out colors and prints. I made a discovery....I have so many polka dots! I am going to make a conscious effort to choose more ginghams, plaids and little flowers. I have been caught up in the big, modern designs, and had forgotten about keeping my stash replenished with little prints.
These are the colors and prints I chose.
I am really excited with my choices :)
I cut out my squares as instructed, and Lori had the coolest method of sewing and cutting the squares. You will have to take a look at how she did it.
Two squares out of each color, times two.
Here is my first row, I love the colors!!!
It's scrap happy :)
Over a year and a half ago, I began the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along.
I showed you my blocks in a former post, here.
I finally finished sewing the sashing between the blocks. I have never sewn blocks on point before, and had to redo quite a few of the yellow triangles. I had cut off the seam allowances and it would have looked terrible so I bit my lip, ripped out the yellow triangles I had sewn, cut larger yellow rectangles, and had enough fabric for seam allowances. I attached the border and now I just need to find some fabric for the back.
The border is red with what else, teeny little white polka dots!
Remember that I said I have a lot of polka dots!!!
I can hardly believe that the top is finished :)
