Playing With Blocks...

Churn Dash Block
I spent part of the weekend working on Farmer's Wife blocks. I've been missing working on these blocks, so I was glad to get back to them.
Linoleum Block
I love choosing the different fabrics to use in the blocks, and then giving all my concentration to cutting, aligning and assembling each block.
Wrench Block
Press (using my favorite linen spray - Fresh Cotton!), square up and measure. I always feel like I've accomplished something when I have a few more to add to the stack. At this rate, I'll have them all finished by...December! (I'm kidding! I'm hoping to have them finished long before then.)
Thimbleberries Cottagewood Print
You may have noticed that I used this fabric in my first block in this post (Churn Dash). I had a fat quarter of it. BIG HUGE COLOSSAL mistake. I love this fabric and don't have enough to make more blocks. I need more to use in future Farmer's Wife blocks.
From RJR Fabrics
Now, I'll be searching for more of this specific fabric. If anyone has any amount that they're willing to part with, please let me know and I'll be happy to purchase it from you. I've checked online and haven't been able to find any there. (I can't type any more. It's too hard while I'm crossing my fingers.)

I'll be in the studio again this week. I'm planning to make more Farmer's Wife blocks, and I'm behind on the quilt shop monthly QAL, so I need to catch up on those, too. If my schedule works out, I'll also go back over to take another of Loreen's paper piecing classes. (I had so much fun last week!)

What do you have planned for this week?

Donna, Nice to see you are well and still creating beautiful works of art.
I am back on a very limited basis.

These blocks are beautiful! Love the softness of the colorway. Unfortunately, I can not help with the fabric search as I do not have any of it. Very little time for me to stitch during the work week... so I'll have to wait until the weekend...

I don't have any of the fabric you are searching for but I'm sending big wishes for much luck with your search.
Have a great day.
Always, Queenie

I wish that I could help you out with the fabric, but I don't have any of it.

There is a store about an hours or so away from me though that might. They have over 11,000 bolts of fabric and it is my go to place if I'm looking for something that is not available. If you want the name and phone number, let me know.
