My problem is, I live in the Baltimore Maryland metro area.....and you can't really have a goat in your backyard....hmmmm......and I don't think I can convince the neighbors that it's a new breed of designer dog (goatdoodles, now there's a name!). So I have two stuffed goats, I named them Daisy and Smithers.....aren't those great names for goats!
To make up for my lack of a farm, I decided for one of my 2010 goals was to create the "The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt". There was a contest in the 1920's about if you would want your daughter to marry a farmer. The contest entries are published in the book and there are 111 blocks in the book as well. My goal is to make 2 blocks a week so by the end of the year, I should have made them all.
I decided to use colors that remind me of a vegtable garden in full bloom. The first block is called "Attic Windows".
Next up is "Autumn Tints"......
The next block really cracks me up.....it's called "Bat Wings". I decided to add a litle to the original blocks.
Then I made the "Big Dipper" and "Bouquet". This week I am going to do "BowTie" and "Box". I am off work today since I managed to get the strep from one of the kids. At least it will give me some time to finish up my Holiday Block Swap squares! I'll post them tommorrow for you to see.
Have a fantastic day!
