1930’s Farmer’s Wife blocks

I’m back after a week with my husband riding our bicycles on the Katy Trail across Missouri.  I had a lot of time to think while biking the 225 mile trail and I think there’s a Katy Trail quilt in my future!  It’s such a beautiful trail and it really shows off the beauty of my home state.  It passes through farm fields and follows along the path of the Missouri River as it winds it’s way across the state.  Most of the trail has a nice covering of trees so it feels like you’re biking down a shady lane.

1930's Farmer's wife blocksI just keep pulling more fabrics out of my stash so I’m jumping around in the book to use fabrics that I have.   It’s good to mix up some easier blocks with the harder ones.  These blocks are actually a great summer project because each one goes together so quickly.  I spend a lot of time during these warm months on yard work or just doing fun things outside but I can manage an hour making a block here or there.  I’ll keep you posted on my progress!
