Farmer’s Wife Friday | Farmer’s Daughter and Wild Goose Chase

Farmer'sWife FridayYep, I’m still working on my Farmer’s Wife Quilt. :)

This week, I’m teaming up with Ellie Roberts at Craft Sew Create for her Farmer’s Wife Friday group. It’s nice to keep my accountable.

I’ve always said this quilt would be a 3 (or so) year project, but if I never work on it, I’ll never finish it. So as much as possible, I’d like to at least get one block done to show you all every week. No promises with summer coming on.

So this week, I managed to squeeze time in to complete Blocks #105 and #32.

Block #105 is called Wild Goose Chase

With all these little tiny pieces, it was a relief to get this one sewn together. I lost a couple of pieces and had to cut them again before this one made it to the machine. Keep in mind, the blocks are only 6 inches square – some of these pieces are T.I.N.Y!!

Block #32 is called Farmer’s Daughter

32 Farmer's Daughter

I’m not a farmer’s daughter in the true sense of the word. I’m an accountant’s daughter (although you wouldn’t know it by my math skills). However I am a farmer’s wife.

I know that the blocks seem to jump around in number (remember, math isn’t my best skill?) but that is because I’m doing the blocks in order with the Farmer’s Wife letters. (ah, yes, reading and writing, much more to my liking) Ha!

This weekend is going to be busy. Tomorrow I’m going to a Farm conference with my farmer hubby. :)

Farming is truly a lifestyle, not a job. If we wanted a job, we’d get one. Farming is so much more than that and dare I say it? “Much more work than that.” Can I hear an amen from my farmer friends out there?

Happy Friday! Thank you so much for stopping by!!


Please leave a comment and leave your blog link (if you have one) I love to visit my web neighbors and if you leave your “address”. I’ll stop by sometime :)

    Thanks for the share! Accountability is pretty great isn’t it? I was double-dog-dared to do a 365 Day blogging challenge and I have a couple of friends holding me to it and it helps that they are in the challenge too. It’s hard to believe I’ve posted 102 days in a row now! Look forward to seeing how your farmer’s wife quilt turns out.

    • Wow, Jennifer! Way to go! :) I can barely get 3 days per week in. Writing every day for 365? Great job. I’m headed over to say hey.
      Thanks for stopping by. I hope that you will come back soon!

  2. They are looking great! I have not made the Wild Goose Chase block, looks like a lot of triangles are in my future. :) Thanks for linking up!

  3. Your blocks are lovely. I really like the pastels. I have such a long way to go on mine, since I just started, but I am already starting to experience the “tiny” pieces… wow!
