For the Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along, I just wasn’t inspired to finish these blocks. I think because my original purpose was to make it in honor of my grandparents’ farm, but I’ve also been working on Grandma’s Garden to fulfill that purpose (and I bought another pattern at the MidAtlantic Quilt Festival that will do so better). As I was talking out things in a failed podcast recording last week, I had the idea to use the blocks I’ve made so far, which are blue and white, in the baby quilt for our niece that is pregnant. She wants to do white and blue colors for her nursery, and using the blocks I’ve already made along with the leftover HSTs from Blue Swoon in the same colorway will work out nicely.
So, with all that preamble, here’s my Q3 “finish” goals:
- Niece’s baby quilt, made of Blue Swoon buffalo HSTs and Farmer’s Wife blocks
- Scrappy Trip Around the world quilt, a donation to Project Linus or other charity (depends on need)
- Grandma’s Garden quilt, from the Saturday Sampler blocks
- Faceted Jewels pillow shams, made of leftover buffalo HSTs from the Faceted Jewels quilt
