Finished up 13 new Farmer's Wife quilt blocks today! I have had mistaken cuts and piecing errors throughout the making stages. Sewing tiny triangles make me nervous and it hasn't been great for most of the blocks. I looked up paper piecing method and questioned if I should go with that that instead. I finished 7 blocks last night, but on my last block I started making more than 2 errors then I knew it was time to quit for the night! 

It has been a great project to work with and make fabric choices and be creative with each block. I pile up all my 34 blocks and put together with the book and finally it is just over the book a bit! I will be working on my next two next week, but I think I will make my fabric selection tonight!

A great to end here...
