Buckwheat and Butterfly at the Crossroads

I think this is the first time I've posted my two blocks of the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt before Nic! For those who don't know, we are stitching two blocks together each week (well, as together as you get when you're on different sides of the UK!) I stitched almost all day yesterday but still had a couple of seams left to finish off ths morning. Goodness knows why they took so long!

The first is Buckwheat - a browny block that will sit with a couple already done with lots of turquiose in them. I like this one more than I thought I might.


And this is Butterfly at the Crossroads. Pretty.

And the whole lot. It was a bit wet outside this morning, so indoor photos this week.

There are two blocks I'm unsure about - the ones with Lecien fabric in them. It's a thinner fabric and a different style of pattern and they stick out like a sore thumb to me. I may have to unpick and redo them. I keep thinking they will merge with the rest as I do more blocks, but they're bugging me. You know how when something bugs you that much it's all you can see?


  1. Nope, sorry. I posted mine at 1.30, so I still just beat you ;)
    Pretty blocks. Mine took most of yesterday too. Though I could do them faster if I could make more than one stitch at a time in my fabric. And if I hadn't been distracted by a LOTR marathon :)

  2. Your blocks are beautiful as usual, they look lovely together. No photography helper this time!
