Engineer's Wife- Day 2

I managed to piece the next 9 Farmer's Wife blocks on Tuesday, but it wasn't easy. I made the last one at 10pm. I was determined to get that 9th block done just because a 3x3 grid makes a nice picture.

Why are the simplest blocks the easiest to screw up?

#16 Calico Puzzle

I played a little bit with fussy cutting which was really fun. This was also my first block with no solid white. This one is a little busy, but I like it anyway.

#15 Buzzard's Roost

I changed the color placement for Century of Progress but I'm not happy with it. I probably won't remake it or use it in my final quilt. There is a huge blob of seam allowances behind the center of this block. It's really unavoidable with so many seams coming together.

#18 Century of Progress

Blocks 1-18

I need to get some other work done today, so this will not be a 9 block day!

9 blocks in one day?!? it would probably take me 2 months to accomplish that! Your blocks are beautiful!!! it is amazing how many pieces there are in some of those little 6" blocks!

What happened to our TWO BLOCK A WEEK PLAN???? Really? Really? I have my TWO blocks done for this week - and one required a panic call to you. This is supposed to be a long term project. Are you TRYING to kill me? Good thing I love you - otherwise I wouldn't like you right now!!! :)
