a farmers wife!

I'm officially now a farmers wife!! I joined the quilt along a few weeks ago and picked up my book at Joanns but had to put it on hold to work on my daughters birthday party. I was also waiting for the fabrics I ordered to arrive and they came on Friday and Saturday!! THANKS, Amy for doing a little swappy-poo with me and pointing me to the right direction to pick up the other 30's Old New fabric by Lecien!!

For my first two blocks I chose were Spool and Country Farm. Spool was the first one I did and it was a great starter one. I also love star blocks so it fit well for my second block!!

{84} Spool ~ a simple but fun block!!

{23} Country Farm. A fun star block!!

Here is a stack of my 30's Old New fabrics that I'll be using for the quilt along. I'll add some basics in with it too and maybe some of the new Annie's Farm Stand. But this is what I'm basing them off of. :)

I can't wait to do a couple more next week!! I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday and enjoy the rest of your week!! We are heading out of town to go camping for the 4th of July so I'll see you next week!!
