Lasr August I made some 6" Farmer's Wife blocks from Laurie Aaron Hird's book and they were looking good.
In the lull after Christmas I brought the basket out again and had a look at what I'd done. Considering the quantity of UFOs I have I decided that perhaps it was time to convert these blocks into a quilt.
There weren't enough blocks to show them off with just a small sashing as in the picture so I cut a heap of triangles to put on on the corners of each on-point patchwork piece to turn it into a square. Once again I was just using up left-over pieces from other quilts.
I had designed (scribbled ?) a layout on paper but when I put all the pieces in place on the carpet it looked a bit of a mess. So on and off for two days I crawled around the carpet rearranging the pieces and threatening to throw the whole lot in the bin.
In the end I took a photo to remind me of what went where - I really did need to pick up all the pieces so that I could get from one end of the room to the other without entering into a long jump competition. The resulting quilt top is -
I'll piece together some more of the bigger scraps to make the backing.
