More blocks

I wanted to do just a quick post (I'm going on a little road trip to one of my very favorite quilt shops today!) to show you my latest Non Farmer's Wife blocks.  As usual, I was caught up for a short time...a very short time!  I finished them Sunday evening and Randy posted 2 more Monday morning!  But that's ok, I'm just happy that I haven't fallen way behind.  Looking at these blocks now, I wish I would have changed a few things.  And, I must not have had enough coffee when I took the pictures because they are all crooked!
 Should have made the centers of the 9 patches red.
 Wish I would have put the medium red where the medium black is, and vice versa.
I think I would prefer red corners.  Geesh!  Maybe I should think a little harder when I am piecing these blocks!  But,  I guarantee they will not be re-done.  I'm doing good to make them once, let alone twice!

And one last thing...my very last (#12) Primitive Gatherings, Summer Block of the Week block...
Sad that it is over!  But...it's really not over because now I'm working on the setting blocks and the border will come next.

And what's a post (yes...I said this was going to be quick...what happened to that?) without a fluffy or two?
You see Miss CC in the chair, but do you notice anyone else?  See those little paws peeking out from behind my flannel wall?  That would be Callie, trying to get CC to play with her!  So entertaining!

Have a great day!

  2. Back away from the Non-FW blocks and take a deep breath. They look fine! In those colors, you can't go wrong, really!
    Another gorgeous Summer BOW! Could you share a photo of them all together? I love them!
    Kitties are SO entertaining. Love to get my giggles over their antics. : )

  3. All right, all right...I'll come over and play. But the kitties must go somewhere else as I'm terribly allergic to them. Didn't mom tell you?

  4. Your blocks look great - crooked or not. When I see your blocks I wish that I was doing this quilt over again!! Can't wait to see your Primitive Gatherings quilt all put together!

  5. Nice to know someone else laments over their fabric placement AFTER the block is completed... we are two of a kind! And I'm sure there are plenty of others that would admit to being the same way! I think the blocks are terrific... love red, black, and creme. Your summer ummer BOW is WOW!!!

  6. uhhhh...deoes it mean that summer is over now that you have finised your BOM? Little Miss CC blends in quite well with the chair but I picked out Callie's toes immediately :)

  8. Your red and black blocks turned out wonderfully. They're quite striking. And that wool block is just divine. Your stitches look so perfect. Had to smile when I saw those kitty paws! I needed a smile today!

    Hope you had a good quilt shop trip. Your blocks are really sharp in red/black and the wool just glows!
