Farmer's Wife Quilt 2015 instalment 4


Today I'm  sharing my latest completed Farmer's  Wife Daughter Quilt blocks.

Farmer's Daughter Quilt Block 48 - Homeward Bound
Completed 16th March 2015
For those that are new, I am completing  this quilt using the hand sewing method of English Paper Piecing.  
Farmer's Daughter Quilt Block 50 - Honeycomb
Completed 18th March 2015
I find it a nice way to relax at the end of the day, though I am itching to spend more time in front of the machine - so many quilts in my head!
Farmer's Daughter Quilt Block 51 - Honey's Choice
Completed 21st March 2015
Again for those that are new, I have chosen to use the colour scheme of pink, green, aqua, white with a pop of orange. 
Farmer's Daughter Quilt Block 51 - Hovering Birds
Completed 21st March 2015
This project has already taken over a year, all progress can be found here.
Farmer's Daughter Quilt Block 52 - Hovering Hawks
Completed 23rd March 2015
I am finding that my fabric choices seem to go in phases, some earlier choices I feel are now a little questionable, but I'm ok with that.  
Farmer's Daughter Quilt Block 53 - Jackknife
Completed 28th March 2015
Overall the quilt will define my quilting journey.
Farmer's Daughter Quilt Block 54 - Kitchen Woodbox
Completed 28th March 2015
And I for one can't wait to see where that journey takes me
Farmer's Daughter Quilt Block 55 - Linoleum
Completed 28th March 2015
And this leaf is block 56 - that's half way to 111 blocks in this quilt!
Farmer's Daughter Quilt Block 56 - Maple Leaf
Completed 28h March 2015
When all of these blocks are together in a quilt they will all balance each other out.
Farmer's Daughter Quilt Block 57 - Morning

I've also managed to baste a few sashing pieces this week too
