Time Flys

It's hard to believe it's been two weeks since I last wrote. 
I have been very productive tho.

I was able to complete my string quilt and love how it turned out. 

Can't say that it made a dent in the strips.

I also machine quilted the turquoise baby quilt. Nothing fancy just some straight lines and waves around the outer border.
Now it's ready to be given away.

Now I can say Yeah!!!!!

The Farmer's Wife 1930 quilt is done.

I did a different setting than the book and didn't use all the blocks I made. I'll have to find something else to use the remaining ones.

Turned out OK

Measures out to be 86 x 93. 

So now on the design wall is my OMG for this month 

it is one of the RSC I started in 2015

Have 10 blocks but I'll need six more to go. 

Linking up with
elm street quilts


  1. I love your string quilt, too. It is positively striking! What size are the blocks?

  2. Love all 4 of your projects. The black really makes the colors in your strings pop. Good luck with your OMG this month.

  3. What great quilts you shared and your goal for March is a beauty. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.

  4. Your projects are all lovely. Good luck achieving your March goal. You can do it!

  5. love your rainbow challenge from several years ago

  6. ooo - those rainbow blocks are pretty! Can you use the FW blocks in a strip on the back?

  7. Great progress, and pretty finishes, a RSC finish would be nice - you can do it!

  8. Yes you get big hays from me for all of these beautiful projects! After all that work the Farmer's Wife quilt came out really well. Your string quilt is the nicest I have ever seen. If you don't mind, I am going to start one like it today. I hope it makes more of a dent in my strings than you describe! I can't thank you enough for all the inspiration you have given me, and all the encouragement to handle life's ups and downs with joy, too.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
